"We still feel we, as Canadians, are getting screwed by Podex's reasoning for charging us the US exchange rate but in the end we've decided to end our boycott against Podex." This was the announcement by Manitou Tourism CAO Winter Silversmith early this morning. The boycott started just over three months ago when the exchange rate from Canadian dollars to Canadian Maples made a sharp decline and, despite exchange rate increases in RealLife, continues to decline.
"Recently we learned that all three clubs owned by Dreamland Group and the Marina Bay Club closed displacing over 1,050 members. I have always been a strong supporter of the Great Canadian Grid, both financially and morally and I could not bear to see such a substantial loss in the entertainment world here" Winter told the Corran Journal. "I decided to lift the boycott not because I feel Podex is right, I still think the exchange is unfair, but because we wish to start up our 'Music in the Mall' program to help fill the gap in the events calendar".
Events in the Manitou Market Mall will begin again in October or November and will be announced on the GCG Events Calendar when they have been determined.
The performers will be broadcast across the mall parcel to all shops and services with only a couple exceptions. This means that all shoppers will hear the performances along with those in the immediate area of the stage. "We usually choose live performances first before DJ's as many of our shoppers love to attend live events. So if any live singers and performers are out there and want to appear at our venue please send your notecard bio and info to Winter Silversmith beginning September 20th. We don't have a lot of Maples to pay but you also receive 100% of your tips" Winter said. Manitou Tourism office is closed from September 6 to September 20 for vacation.
As the winter season is quickly approaching in Manitou (November 1) a special tent shelter has been set up for those who just want to sit and listen to the music.
