Upvoted because it's interesting, but I also wanted to point out the hilarious phrasing:

"Invest in Corona Canada"

:D

I'm surprised Corona is spending money on marketing, even if it's to put a positive spin on things ("supporting Canada's tourism industry"). If I was them, I would just lay low for a couple of years and just rely on loyal customers rather than trying to grow the brand name.

I'm sure every restaurant server/bartender is tired of all the Corona jokes when they ask customers their drink order...

Checking out the prices of the Ontario packages.... They desperately need someone to discretely forward this to https://www.resourcemovement.org/ https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/milennia ... -1.5726557

Just looks like the regular "country manor" type hotels that are usually 50% off on Travelzoo.

These packages are extremely overpriced. 2 hotels in these packages have been on groupon for 1/3 of what they are offering. I mean, bidding starts at $450 for 2-night camping.... That's just insane right there. No wonder, many have no bids, the value in these packages are pretty low( based on Ontario. Did not look at other provinces.
I often use voice typing and rarely read what I had typed...

How I need 450$ package to canoe camp somewhere in those wilderness. All I need is 10$ backcountry camping fee and rent a canoe from the provincial park. With the package money I can buy a whole set of tent and camping gear.
