Support for New Tourism Model

After presenting it a few weeks ago, the Board of Trade is backing Mayor Courts bid to set up a new tourism model. It would see the city invest 1 million dollars, and then an additional 2.5 per cent. St. Martins, Quispamsis, Rothesay, Hampton and Grand Bay Westfield will only invest 25 hundred dollars each. President Imelda Gilman tells CHSJ News, tourism is one of the sectors outlined in the true growth strategy.

Gilman says the current model isn't broken but with the proposed changes can offer so much more to both tourists and the five regional communities.
