Prince Rupert Cruise Terminal lumped in with the herd of White Elephants

The city's tourism department most likely won't like the publicity, but a recent article from the Campbell River Mirror outlines how our city's cruise terminal is joining the ranks of the province's tourism white elephants.

A collection of docking spaces for cruise ships that seem destined to grow cobwebs as the next few years move forward.

In a column that suggests that misery loves company, Campbell River explores the growing theme of British Columbia ports getting bypassed by the West Coast cruise industry, with a particular gaze cast on the apparent rivalry between Nanaimo and Campbell River's cruise ship options, both apparently not of much interest to the cruise lines at the moment.

It all makes for interesting reading, you can find it here from the Campbell River Mirror's website.
