Posted By: Trudie Mason · 12/17/2012 10:06:00 AM


Tourism Montreal is reporting a slight drop in the number of visitors taking in the sights of the city this year.

Figures from January to November indicate average hotel occupancy was 67.4 percent, down 1.6 percent compared to last year.

The tourism agency says there are several reasons for the drop, including what it calls the "social disturbances" involving tuition protesters over the summer. As well, there were fewer conventions booked into Montreal and Europe's difficult financial situation discouraged travel to Canada.
