Trump letter"The times, they are a changin'," sang Bob Dylan way back at the start of the '60s revolution. Well they are changin' once again. The Brexit vote shocked not only the markets and the debt rating agencies (both of which promptly punished Britain for voting 'leave'), but it led to the resignation of PM David

beachlitterDear Editor,

In a day and age where money basically runs society it's surprising just how many people can afford to travel. Thanks partly to online "deal finders" and the low Canadian dollar, visitors have all the more incentive to stay north of the border this summer season. But is this an issue?
