Letters to the Editor 

Dear Coastys,

Taken from advertising banner on Canadian spam style website: "Enjoy Nova Scotia MusicYou'll Fall in Love w/ Our Culture After a Few Bars. Visit Nova Scotia". That's right, we are exporting the message that our culture will be palatable after one has become drunk and unable to make sensible decisions. This may seem super funny to some, but, the retailers, tour operators, restaurants, travel operators, and other local businesses (and their employees) are left to wonder why nobody showed up from USA again this year! Maybe it could also be because Tourism Nova Scotia has traditionally focused the majority of it's budget advertising Nova Scotia tourism in Nova Scotia! Halifax needs to learn the fine art of tourism from Victoria, B.C. Tourism is prosperity in a historic coastal city such as ours and currently we are dropping the money-filled ball.
