Boycott `Fizzled,' Florida Tourism Up: Primate's (World Relief Development) Fund Defends Decision
Larmondin, Leanne, Anglican Journal
Canadians seem to be ignoring the boycott of Florida called by Canadian churches and unions.
Tourism was actually up in Florida last year, recent statistics show, and analysts predict another boost this winter season. The boycott had "no effect" on tourism last year, said Craig Roberts, a public relations representative with the Florida Tourism Industry Marketing Corporation in Toronto.
"It sort of fizzled, to be honest," he said. "I had a clipping service here and I even went so far as to go into an Oxfam (Bridgehead) store to ask about it. The manager didn't know what I was talking about." (Oxfam was a key organizer of the boycott.)
