  • Does the 367000 figure include those passengers on cruise ship?

  • There will be fewer “sunny days” until there is ‘allowed’, more investment around the Province by … Nova Scotians . Those lacking funds will have to ‘work’ at it . Underachievement ?

  • Some good points of course . The real problem is that the province does not talk about the long term effects of tourism and the whole picture . It is always ,”this year” and “last” year. 2016 will be better than 2015 , but think we have been on the decline since 1999-2000 and we’ll likely not recoup those accumulated losses . Far fewer tourism businesses now in rural NS than 1999 . No work is being done to deal with the underground accommodations and those lost millions in tax dollars, so we must be richer than we think . You need a full financial analysis here, but that would let a lot of ghosts and secrets out about the dark side of tourism . The last AG audit was 2004 .The province is making big bucks and also wasting big bucks in tourism . A ferry that can’t take trucks for a longer season is a terrible decision . Leaving Bar Harbour was likely another .

  • Getting a bit tired and bored with the continued Yarmouth-Maine ferry drum beating.No doubt but that it will get the very full review that it deserves during the fast approaching election campaign and the S. McNeil Gov’t will get treated accordingly..
