Canada's National Tourism Marketing Site Sends Visitors to Site Promoting Drugs and Hookers
A simple typo for people looking to follow a link from the Tourism Industry Association of Canada to the Banff Lake Louise Hospitality Association instead taken to page promoting drug use and escorts in London.
ProPics Canada Media is subsidizing a project to produce only 400 short videos for Tourism and hospitality businesses from all around the country. It may seem like a large number but given the number of tourism regions throughout Canada, the chances for businesses to be accepted is small but well worth the effort. The videos have the potential to be seen in over 100,000,000 homes worldwide plus social media and other platforms.
In researching industry statistics and information on specific businesses, a link was pressed on the Tourism Industry of Canada's website that should have taken James to the Banff & Lake Louise Hospitality Association and instead went to a site full of detailed information on marijuana and a London based escort agency. A very serious typo on behalf of the Tourism Industry Association of Canada's website. ProPics Canada Media Ltd provides video and photograph to major media outlets worldwide, corporate and private clients etc. but ALWAYS CHECKS EVERY LINK SHARED BEFORE IT GOES LIVE.
This is a very important lesson to not only web designers but also clients to check web accuracy, links and if they have inbound links from other sites, no matter how reputable, they are physically checked for correctness. It may now answer a question for many parents of teenage boys everywhere, "why is my son always checking out tourism to Canada?"
Media outlets wanting the video clip of the site and linked site can get a licensed copy at either www.stringr.com or www.stringershub.com
