Transcript—Tourism Week 2017
Bardish Chagger: Happy Tourism Week.
I am here on Parliament Hill to recognize the many dedicated people involved in tourism. They are here to welcome you from all across our country, ready to give you an unforgettable experience.
But you don't have to hear it from me.
Ginette Petitpas Taylor: There will be festivals and activities to celebrate August 15, the National Acadian Day. Come and see us. You're sure to have lots of fun and good times.
Lawrence MacAulay: We have great golf courses. We have boating, deep sea fishing. Endless things to do in Prince Edward Island.
Scott Brison: So whether you're into kayaking or sailing or paddle boarding or swimming or just looking at the beautiful ocean, Nova Scotia has the best ocean experiences anywhere.
Gudie Hutchings: We have incredible national parks. We have incredible provincial parks. The scenery driving is just breathtaking. And then of course when you get off the roads and travel about, you're going to see some special, special things.
Mélanie Joly: It's a very large province—a province that's known for its creativity, its inventiveness and the development of an extraordinary cultural and creative sector.
Diane Lebouthillier: The beautiful things that Quebec has to offer—I'd say that Quebec is beautiful overall, but the regions of Quebec are particularly exceptional.
Maryam Monsef: Ontario boasts great water, beautiful green spaces, arts, culture, music and, of course, incredibly kind and generous people.
Patty Hajdu: If you're an outdoors enthusiast, if you're someone who loves good food and culture, Northern Ontario is the place to be.
Kent Hehr: The greatest thing about our province is our people. Whether you meet them on the streets, whether you're in a coffee shop, a restaurant.
Jim Carr: Winnipeg is hosting the Canada Games as part of the celebration of Canada 150, so our finest athletes will be in Winnipeg this summer.
Amarjeet Sohi: I would say one of the jewels of Edmonton is Fort Edmonton Park, rich with the history of Indigenous people, early settlers.
Larry Bagnell: Well, my favorite thing to do in the Yukon is go fishing. The outdoors is wonderful, and you get out with family and friends and have a great job camping and fishing.
Jody Wilcon-Raybould: There's abundant natural beauty in British Columbia. The best thing for me is being close to the water and participate in activities.
Bardish Chagger: But don't take it just from them. Come see for yourself!
