It just dawned on me: when the tourismocrats do crazy things like this, it’s because don’t actually like Prince Edward Island and feel that the only way to effectively promote tourism is to try to hide the real Island behind a freaky faux Island trucked in from away.
Here’s a freaky example:
The pinnacle of the Festival will be the Canjet Snow Kingdom, the home of Jack Frost.
Then, of course, there’s the “Family Concerts in the Park featuring Tributes to Shania Twain and Hilary Duff,” the “TechnoMedia Snow Maze” and the “Treehouse Live Outdoor Stage.”
In the freaky tourism dream-Island, everything has to have corporate sponsorship because nobody in their right mind would actually support this kind of thing without corporate cocaine to fuel it.
It might as well be Red Deer, Brandon, or Moncton at this point, they will have so effectively sucked the Island out of the Island.
Good-bye Charlie Town, we hardly knew ya…
