    From todays Letters to the Editor section in the Toronto Sun . Bracketed text is editor's pithy reply.


    OUR FAIR city has a golden opportunity to reap much-needed tourism dollars without even trying. The city of Rochester has come knocking on the door with its own ferry, bringing hundreds of Americans with fistfuls of U.S. dollars to our shores. Yes! The Americans are coming! Not to declare war, but to spend, spend, spend. Being the world-class city we are, we plan to meet this large entourage of U.S. spenders with a tent, set up on the beautiful shores of Cherry Beach among the oil drums. I wouldn't be surprised if the first boatload headed right back home again.

    Actually, if there is a tent city pitched on the beach, I think the editor's right, they'll be overjoyed there's a touch of home here! ;)

    Always beware of the Americans - especially when they come by boat. :)

    Was at a bar in downtown Toronto prior to WWE Survivor Series 2016. Mentioned to the bartender I was from Rochester. He promptly asked “whatever happened to the ferry?” I couldn’t stop laughing after he asked.....
