Provincial Tourism Numbers Are Lukewarm

"Okay" is the term being used by the Tourism Industry Association of New Brunswick when describing the tourism season in the province so far this summer.

Executive Director Real Robichaud tells CHSJ News while the final numbers aren't in yet, the combination of high gas prices, the exchange rate, and the weather have all contributed to a 1 to 2% drop in business this season.

However, Robichaud says the Fundy region did well -- the Hopewell Rocks are reporting a 1.5 percent increase in business.
