Icy response


Dear Editor,

I very much appreciated the editorial titled "An icy vision of the future." It has always been an unfortunate fact that the City has never been able to grasp the potential of High On Ice as a tourist draw, like the Gold Panning Championship in Taylor or (dare I compare) the Shakespeare festival in Stratford, Ontario. (Hey, they started small, too.) I have never seen so much advertising of this event, blanketing so many media. That can't be cheap. All that advertising is for local eyes only - there are no outside dollars being attracted.

The big line I see so often is that it will be so much cheaper without the professional competition component. I'm having difficulty understanding how unionized City employees can deliver savings over volunteers from a non-profit organization. Maybe that's just me.

As a potential tourist draw, I think it could have been a good investment; as just a community party, I question the expense.
