Mauricie et Centre-du-Québec: les attraits touristiques font front commun

THREE-RIVERS | decisions of Quebec does not pass in the tourist industry. Eighteen leaders crave François Legault to confirm their re-opening. The City of energy, the Village québécois d’antan and amusement centers RécréOFUN are part of the gathering.

“I find it hard to understand why we allow so many people in the buses and the Montreal metro, but it prevents the City of energy to use elevators to reach the observation tower,” said Thursday, TVA News, the mayor of Shawinigan, Michel Angers.

A hundred companies have their attractions, thematic sites, water parks and amusement centers remain deserts, more than three months after the paused Quebec.

“For us, the Village québécois d’antan, the summer season accounts for over 40% of our annual income,” said the director Guy Bellehumeur.

The RécréOFUN of Trois-Rivières assure to him only a thirty jobs, and welcomes 50,000 children annually.

“Obviously, the financial implications are disastrous for the co-owners of the company, the impact to the customer is disastrous, same thing for the employees. For me, the option to remain closed all summer is not an option,” explained the co-owner of the entertainment centre, Sébastien Gauthier.

The City of energy in Shawinigan will be able to launch its summer season June 27, but without the show Nezha neither its observation tower.

The more the days go by, the more the deficit goes up. “For the City of energy, an estimated loss of$ 400,000 for the year 2020,” revealed the director general, Sandy Letendre.

A tourist attraction that is closed leads to financial losses for the region. For example, a visitor who sleeps a night at the Village québécois d’antan spends approximately 300$ in the Centre-du-Québec.

The attractions all await the green light to plan the summer and integrate the vacation packages soon put forward by the government.
