American Tourism to Canada Dropping
According to the London Free Press, Americans visiting Canada is on the downward trend.
"A drop in American visitors to the lowest level ever recorded is being cushioned by more Canadians staying at home, London-area businesses and tourism officials say."
I say GOOD. Canada has been increasingly becoming American haters in their politics, entertainment, and news reporting. All the while they have become one of our biggest security problems with that giant, unprotected border we share.
After that big bust of Canadian terrorists a few months back, it became clearer just how lax the Canadians are where it concerns terrorism.
But, the incompetency of their security services aside, it is things like the following that many Americans are just sick and tired of hearing about...
Ontario university mocks Bush in new campaign
"A small northern Ontario university has sparked controversy by launching an edgy new recruitment campaign that mocks U.S. President George Bush and his Ivy League alma mater.
...Last month, simplyaudiobooks.ca, an audio book rental service, plastered posters and billboards around Toronto featuring a photograph of Bush and the words: 'Don't Read Enough? Rent 10,000 books on tape/CD.'"
Americans should stay home and keep their money home, too. French wine has been losing millions since 9/11/01 and I hope the boycott continues to devastate their economy and we should tell Canada to jump in any one of their many lakes.
There is so much to see and do right here in the states, and in the US held territories. there just isn't any real REASON to go to a foreign country and spend our money. Spend US money at HOME!
