Hospitality SJ President Says Tourists Could Pay For City's H20

Tourists could pay for Saint John's water needs. That statement from the president of Hospitality Saint John, Mike Belliveau.

Belliveau says tourism brings 1.5 million visitors to Saint John, generates $250 million and employs one out of ten people in the area. He tells CHSJ News for every dollar spent at a tourist attraction, it will attract four dollars in return. 

He says the great thing about tourism is, when you attract tourists to your area, it's free money. It's people from away investing their income into your city.
