In doing so we stay in vacation homes for the winter in different parts of Canada. This year, with COVID19, it has been vastly different. There is much to think about as we self isolate, lots of sad news, then there are the #covidiots and then a small smattering of feel good stories. Here is "eh feel good story" from the people we rented from this winter/spring in #kamloops as COVID-19 broke out. Be nice to each other. Be safe.
    ***
    " I’m trying to post this somewhere out there where everyone can see it. It’s about the “Fabro’s”. That is what I call the Fabulous Brothers that make up the team of “Eh Canada Travel.com”.

    These two guys are not just fabulous brothers, .....they are fabulous human beings. We need more of them in our world. Their work is their passion, and they are passionate about our Country. Everything they do, is for the greater good of Canada.

    We had the pleasure of sharing our home with them this past winter while they worked in Merritt and the surrounding area. This was our first winter season to be “Snowbirds” and head south for 6 months. And we were nervous about leaving our house sit empty, but more afraid of renting it out to “who knows who” ???

    But one day last year I decided to search for “people looking for temporary accommodations in Kamloops”, and Voila!......this led me to 2 brothers and ehCanadaTravel.com.

    From the first email correspondence, to the video chat, to the “meet in person”, all the way up to Move In Day, this was a true blessing. These 2 guys are amazing. Professional, friendly, funny, responsible, and very very caring. Genuine care, just not for our home, but for us. I can’t call them “tenants”. They watched over our home as though it was their own.

    They took great care as much outdoors, as they did indoors. They raked and bagged leaves (again and again). As fast as they could bag them, more were dropping, until they had a huge heap of leaves all bagged.

    And they took great care indoors as well. We returned this spring, unfortunately earlier than planned, due to the #covid19 virus. We were prepared to stay in our holiday trailer, as we were not at the end of the rental agreement yet. But these guys wouldn’t have it.

    They were not comfortable knowing that we were in a trailer, while they were in our house. So they made extreme measures to move out quickly, so that we could move back into our home. And even on very short notice, the home was spotless, and perfect. It had the scent of disinfectant as they wiped down “everything” to ensure it was safe for our arrival.

    As I said, they are beyond “tenants”. They are two wonderful people that think more of the needs of others before themselves. We are blessed to know them, and I want Canada to know how great they are. Colin and Greg Girard, thank you for all you do for tourism in Canada, and I pray with all my heart that you, your company, and our country will be OK after this difficult time. God’s best to you both “Fabro’s”........ Shelley & Didier.

    To Our Valued Clients and Friends,

    We find ourselves in one of the toughest and most challenging times of our generation and for the tourism industry. The full impact of the Corona Virus is yet to be seen. What is already clear is that the level of harm felt by the tourism industry will lead to some tough decisions.

    In these challenging times we are seeing the true character of some of our tourism associations and the inaction that follows. However, we believe there is no more resilient industry on the planet than the tourism industry. The foundation of every tourism sector starts in every Canadian community. And we are committed to the well being of small, rural and urban Canada. This global crisis makes it even more important for all of us to come together, look out for one another, show compassion not greed and help each other move forward with hope and determination.

    ehCanadaTravel.com is committed to doing our part - to help businesses like yours not just survive, but thrive once the current situation turns a corner. We have already witnessed a wave of tips, links and letters from DMO Presidents across the internet. You do not need another one. You do not need spin, you need action. We will not add to your disappointment.

    Instead we are reaching out to our clients, stakeholders, friends and partners across our network to source out the best action plan, tools, and resources available today and how we can develop them and deliver them to you. Please follow us so you’ll see our new measures coming out soon and we hope they are useful for our current and new supporting partners in tourism.

    Like you, we have been affected directly by the Corona Virus and the global measures being rolled out to control it. Even with, Colin and I, working from home we are as committed as ever to support your tourism business. Finally, and most importantly, we hope that you, your families and friends remain healthy, act smart and stay safe during these coming months.

    Cheers,
    Colin and Greg Girard - Co Founding Brothers

    A Message for our Co Founder,

    Tourism is going to be one of the most affected industries in this global crisis. Many small and rural communities rely on tourism to survive. I am hearing too many cries for help from community accommodations, attractions, tours, guides, etc. from across Canada. For so many of them, the summer is their peak season in order to weather the slower winter season. History shows many will not see another good summer peak season until the summer of 2022. A 2.5 year recovery period!

    Federal is helping big money tourism corporations like airlines, trains and more. Yes, they are providing services to help with lost wages in the service and hospitality industry. And yes, subsidies are being provided for small businesses.

    BUT! Tourism is a provincial and regional responsibility. This brings to question? Where are our heavily funded provincial and regional tourism associations at this time? What are they doing? How are they helping? What actions are they implementing? What assurances are they giving to the front line of tourism? Is there an action plan? Where are they period? Most are ghosts when the tourism industry actually really needs them.

    A webinar, an email, a text is all window dressing. Our clients receive them by the boat load anyway during the good times and now in these challenging times. Our clients do not need more links, tips and another Message from the President of the DMO.

    All talk, no action is going to result in a very high rate of businesses not reopening, declaring bankruptcy and jobs lost.

    When we break the curve (CO-VID), previous research shows tourism takes up to 2+ years to recover. I do not know many small town tourism businesses who will survive that. Anyone can be a hero in the good times. Now when our tourism and hospitality businesses need their provincial and regional support the most, they are ghosts, no-shows?

    We are not a DMO. But... what makes us different from a DMO is that we are not corporate. We care about the people we work with. We know most of them well. We are actual people who love our job, the industry and our supporting clients. To us they are not a number.

    In the next few days we will be announcing some measures to assist our current clients moving forward and for any new clients who want to work with actual human beings.

    Unfortunately, we can do nothing on the scale of what a DMO can do and should do but we will do our best based on our limited resources and conversations we have had with our clients and partnered tourism stakeholders. It is the right thing to do. The bottom line... we want to survive these challenging times alongside our clients with our professionalism in tact. Leave no tourism business behind!

    The Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at the University of British Columbia presents Ridge by “creative typhoon” (The Georgia Straight), slam poet, and musician Brendan McLeod on Thursday March 26, 2020, at 7:30pm in the Telus Studio Theatre. Often called the “battle that made Canada,” Vimy Ridge resulted in over 10,000 Canadian casualties. Through direct storytelling, verbatim theatre, and live music, McLeod takes us back to the historic battle in a visceral work that honours the memory of Canadian soldiers, probes difficult yet necessary questions about how and why we grieve, and takes a searing look at the futility of war and the callousness of political and military leaders.
