The head of the Pembina Valley Tourism Association thinks the concept of a travel tax credit wouldn't do much to encourage tourism in rural Manitoba.
A private members bill in the house of commons is proposing a tax credit for Canadians who travel within Canada. The bill proposes a tax credit for air, bus or train fares on non-business trips that cross at least three provincial borders.
Penny Schoonbaert says tourists using those modes of travel generally end up in larger centres like Winnipeg, which does very little to promote tourism in rural areas such as the Pembina Valley.
The private member's bill tabled in the House of Commons by Liberal MP Massimo Pacetti would allow an income tax deduction of 100 per cent of bus fares, 75 per cent on train tickets and 50 per cent for domestic flights, up to a maximum of $2,000.
Canada's international travel deficit continues to rise, and politicians are looking at ways to increase more domestic travel spending. "I understand what this bill is trying to accomplish and I applaud them for trying to come up with ways of enticing the Canadian traveller to stay in Canada. I'm not convinced it's the best idea."
