Vancouver Gets the Fallout from the Alaskan Reduction

As we pointed out in a recent article in Cruise News Daily, Vancouver is the innocent victim in the cruise lines' reduction of cruises to Alaska in 2010 and beyond. An article in today's Globe & Mail details how the effects are reaching much farther in western Canada than just just the loss of the cruise ships. Unfortunately the reality of the economic impact has yet to actually be understood by most Alaskans who will be hit harder and are responsible for the cruise lines' decision - and who are not acting to stop further losses in 2011 and beyond.
