...this area will likely be part of the new Innovation District...

Lest it suffers the fate of its predecessor.

I usually direct tourists to take a stroll down Pandora.

Was the quiet phase-put of the district by-design?

Know it all.

B.C. welcomed 595,795 foreign overnight visitors in June, according to new Destination British Columbia number crunching of Statistics Canada data.


That is down 28.5 per cent from the same month in 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic virtually ground international travel to a halt.


That decline in relation to months in 2019 has been holding steady. 


In May, the province's 439,677 foreign overnight visitor count was down 28.6 per cent from the same month in 2019. May's total was up 54.1 per cent from May 2022, while in June, the increase over last June was a comparatively low 48.8 per cent. 


Normalized travel by Mexicans was one reason for the softer June visitor data.
