The Tourism Industry Association of Nova Scotia Questions 2004 weren't specific questions, but, a list of issues of concern:

  • Access to capital funding for SME's & regional development
  • Air access strategies
  • Airport & Security Fees
  • Highways & Municipal Infrastructure Investment
  • Inter modal transportation
  • Investment in natural, coastal & marine habitats
  • Investment in cultural and historic sites
  • Small Harbours & Wharf Strategy
  • Training and development of a sustainable workforce

generic draft answers


  • Access to capital funding for SME's & regional development should be part of a general infrastructural capital enhancement program, focusing on multi-purpose facilities and off-season adaptation to other uses

  • Air access strategies for the Atlantic region include more direct links to New England via Boston, and more direct flights to Europe, especially to Germany

  • Airport & Security Fees should reflect actual costs not be used as general revenue; the current airport fee should be reduced and should not apply to a small airport like Sydney, Moncton or Yarmouth

  • Highways & Municipal Infrastructure Investment should include rest areas and more information kiosks where tourists can quickly find out about local events

  • Inter modal transportation policy includes better integration of air, bus, ferry routes, and the ability to rent cars very close to these points

We will make new

  • Investment in natural, coastal & marine habitats not just of tourist interest but in general; Full funding of initiatives to restore the Atlantic Salmon population.

  • Investment in cultural and historic sites like Lunenburg and Louisburg and Port Royal to keep them authentic and lively; Promote historic linkages (in France, New England, Germany, Scotland especially)

  • Investment in small Harbours & Wharfs to ensure safe reliable ocean access for tourists

  • Investment in development of a sustainable workforce including safety and environmental practices training
