It will be interesting to see what happens with city hall’s attempt to get out of the tourism business. It’s never easy to stop providing a service, which is why the city is still sending snowplows down our sidewalks. But tourism is under the gun. A new city hall report makes it official that council decided behind closed doors during 2013 city budget discussions to try to get someone else to manage tourism services. Guelph is a great place to live, but it’s hardly a big tourist destination. The fact that the city tourism outlet is located in a section of the main floor of city hall, which is not open to the public much of the time, says a lot about the state of tourism promotion today in this city. What happens now is worth keeping an eye on.
