In response to Pat Asling's letter in your November 5th edition, I could not agree more, and so would the rest of the Tourism Advisory Committee (TAC)! All of us who have served on the committee, including some of us since it was set up in 2010, have been trying to impress on anyone who would listen how much potential the Township has as a tourism magnet.
Letting the rest of Canada know about what we have to offer requires significant investment which we can fund with the help of Durham Region, Central Counties and whatever budget Council allocates to TAC. If we can persuade all the parties involved to work together with TAC then we may well be able to get some serious tourism traffic into downtown. We already have the most used trails anywhere in the Greater Toronto Hamilton Area! We just need to get these visitors to come into town as part of their trip.
So yes we need more promotion but one of the best ways is by word of mouth, so pass the word on to your friends and relatives that we are a great place to visit, as well as the Trails Capital of Canada. Let's make sure everyone in Canada knows it!
