The b & b owners angry at having to be still closed

Des propriétaires de gîtes fâchés de devoir être encore fermés

The owners of tourist lodges still pass their turn and will have to wait until you know the date where they will be able to reopen their facilities.

They do décolèrent not face the government which has just announced the imminent return of the tourist attractions in the region.

The owner of the Hostel to the two fathers, Magog, Christiane Blain, expected that she be allowed to resume its activities by the end of June, which now appears unlikely. “We absolutely must be on their feet as quickly as possible,” quipped Ms. Blain, the camera VAT New.

At Home Drew, also in Magog, there are many customers calling to cancel their reservation. “I have easily 300, 350 reservations of cash flows for June, July, August, September, October, and then, this morning, when I looked, I was 39,” said Pierre Robinette.

The owners of this kind of institutions represent 60 % of the supply of accommodation in the region of Memphremagog which has the potential of attracting large batch of tourists from quebec.

According to them, this is a non-sense that we do not say when they will reopen, all the more that they will have to pass the foreign tourism next September. “If we don’t have tourists here, we’re going to have to have a better summer,” said Ms Blain.

Québec, they will return the equivalent of the lodging tax they have collected since January by way of financial compensation, an aberration, the owners have to say.

Some receive less than $ 200 so that they are closed for three months.

All they want is to be able to again welcoming tourists before it is too late and that the financial survival of some of them is threatened.

“If we do not recover more quickly the tourist quebec, there are lodgings that are going to be financially in any real danger,” warned Mr. Robinette.
