Are cruise ships really a sustainable component of a local economy? This is exactly what the caption under the City of Vancouver’s new website claims (see screenshot with notes).
It’s been a few weeks since the City has revamped its website, and there are still are many gapping holes in the content. Please let us know if you’ve noticed any key information on the old website that has been removed or that has been overly simplified. Our observations on the updated $3million website is that it reads and looks more like a tourism and city promotional website with more emphasis on style rather than substance. There are people who use the website to find essential information; on this criteria the old website was far more complete and accessible. Cruise ship passengers can use tourismvancouver.com for site-seeing details about the city; vancouver.ca should serve its residents first.
