Heat turned up on Diodati over Paradise project

No Comments

From Niagara This Week:

The city’s mayor has been accused of lobbying Premier Kathleen Wynne on behalf of the group proposing a $1.5-billion development on property that is home to more than 200 acres of provincially significant wetlands.

“I did not know that you were lobbying the Premier,” Coun. Carolynn Ioannoni told Mayor Jim Diodati at Tuesday’s meeting of Niagara Falls City Council. “I haven’t seen one letter from you to the Premier. They haven’t been copied to council. We didn’t give a motion to direct letters to the Premier lobbying for the developer, so if we could as a council get copies of those letters that would be fantastic.”

Investors reconsidering Thundering Waters project

From the Niagara Falls Review:

The future of a proposed $1.5-billion development backed by Chinese investors in Niagara Falls is now uncertain.

A spokeswoman for the developer told the Globe and Mail some of the project’s backers, which include the real estate fund of a state-owned Chinese investment company, are re-evaluating their commitments because of ongoing delays.

Cynthia Lai, a Toronto-area real estate agent and spokeswoman for GR (CAN) Investment Co. Ltd., an arm of China-based GR Investment Group, told the national newspaper some investors are reconsidering their investment, but not GR (CAN).

She said GR (CAN) is looking for investors every day, which they don’t have trouble finding.

From Fox 32 in Chicago:

Leaf peeping is so old school. These days there’s a lot more to do than just look at the trees.

Get out and play, and afterwards, celebrate how much fun you’ve had with a local brew or spirit and delicious meal—farm to table, of course.

Here are 10 places guaranteed to please this fall:

Just as cooler temperatures have little impact on the thundering waters flowing over the Horseshoe and American Falls, the stream of tourists and family-friendly events don’t stop when winter arrives in Niagara Falls.

From the colourful Winter Festival of Lights displays along the Niagara Parkway to the sweet lure of the Niagara Icewine Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, the Ontario city comes alive with a festive glow during the holiday season.

Here are five musts for travellers visiting Niagara Falls over the holidays.

A few Niagara-related items in the Summer 2010 CAA magazine

No Comments

The other day I received the latest CAA magazine. I’m in the Niagara Region, so there are always local things highlighted in the magazine. I noticed these 3 things in particular. I’m not sure which (if any) of them might have been in other regional editions of the magazine:

  1. The small “Coaster Craving” article doesn’t mention Dragon Mountain at Marineland, but does mention Sky Screamer
  2. I thought the ad for the Fallsview Cascade was interesting, as it doesn’t show the hotel at all.
  3. Thundering Waters is mentioned in the Grip It and Rip It blurb
