Imagine Cortes - 'an affordable local destination easily accessible to Vancouver and beyond'.. affordable and accessible for locals too.
Local Business & Tourism/CIBATA as a Cortes Presence Vancouver Outdoor Adventure & Travel Show aims to deepen the awareness of the right kind of tourists and clients about life here in the archipelago, an island 3 costly ferries away from the mainland. In that light, potential travellers wandering around the show might enlarge their perspective if they knew something about the economic and social impacts of the BC Ferry cutbacks as the group describes in it's Ferry letter, see - ( see also Tideline- Mixing Messages).

Allow me to venture a friendly suggestion at no charge. It has splendid idea potential and is grant free. Post your Ferry letter in your booth #617 in Vancouver this weekend. It would give serious balance to the rosy hued descriptions we often see in unctious tourist ads. It could logically arouse sympathies and add more numbers to the passionate crowds in Victoria next Tuesday; and to the growing number of letters sent to the powers-that-be on behalf of coastal communities.
Give it a go. You may be pleasantly surprised at the response.
