Cabinet To Decide Fate Of Visitor Information Centres, Today
Tourism minister Mark Fuery says he and his cabinet colleagues will decide the fate of six provincially-run visitor information centres at this morning’s cabinet meeting.
Furey adds he’s ready to share a report that contains recommendations he’s been mulling over for months with the province’s tourism agency, Tourism Nova Scotia.
He goes on to say he’s disappointed with the amount of speculation there’s been surrounding the fate of the centres that includes the one at the Canso Causeway.
Fuel was added to the fire this week when the province’s latest edition of the Doers and Dreamers guide for tourists left the centres off a provincial map.
Furey says he would have included the centres on the map if he could go back and change things.
Tourism Nova Scotia says all of the visitor information centres saw more visitors last year than the year before with the exception of the centre at the Halifax Airport.
The Centre in Port Hastings saw nearly 71-thousand visitors in 2015, up from nearly 65-thousand the year before.
