Tourism down: Arthur revving up campaign

Right in wo_oopstime for a thorough op-ed here at xsamplex: Nova Scotia’s tourism is down. Apparently, it’s gasoline and the Iraq war to blame. Like -uh-:

 [The Tourism minister, MacDonald] says the province will concentrate on attracting new visitors from Europe, and from emerging tourist markets in China.

We could always take the New York approach by begging people to come over to our violently quiet province.

1 This is almost too funny: I was actually thinking of the Dutch word ‘geweldig’ (amazing) before penning down ‘violently’. One portion of my brain was thinking ‘geweldadig’ (violence/violently), hence the ‘violently’, which now turns out to be a Freudian slip.
