The paper discusses how the city of Toronto is cosmopolitan, relatively safe, has an under-rated theatre and arts community, offers an attractive waterfront vista and is remarkably affordable for tourists eager to buy souvenirs. The paper then discusses the lingering fears about SARS, the city's unknown arts community and the frigid winter weather. The paper also relates that the general sense that Toronto is "nice" but not dynamic in the same way that New York, London, Paris or Rome are, is keeping Canada's largest urban center from being the tourist magnet it could be.
From the Paper:"Toronto's tourist industry is at a cross-roads. Since 2000, the total number of US tourists has declined by 15 percent. Among same-day travelers from America, the numbers have, quite literally, fallen through the floor. At the same time, the number of overnight travelers has also dropped, through much more modestly. Happily, emerging tourist markets from overseas and domestic tourism has propped up the tourist sector in the absence of US visitors: in 2006, visitor spending was up 7 percent from the previous year, and it seems overseas travelers are the major reason why this was so (Tourism Toronto, 2006). Without question, the trend is ineluctably moving towards a non-American tourist market in which Canada's largest city will have to find a way to accommodate, more and more, people who are non-white and interested in the cosmopolitan aspects of the metropolis - like Toronto's thriving Chinese or Indian (or Caribbean) communities."
