Les touristes évitent la France

L’attaque de Nice a eu un effet immédiat sur les touristes, qui ont été nombreux vendredi à annuler leur voyage en France. Des événements tragiques comme celui survenu sur la Côte d'Azur donnent toujours un dur coup au tourisme pendant quelques mois. Lors des attentats du 11 septembre 2011, les visiteurs internationaux avaient attendu neuf mois avant de retourner en plus grand nombre à New York. Mais la crainte des touristes ne perdure pas non plus pendant plusieurs années, selon ce qui a été constaté par le passé.

Geoff Molson: ‘You need to be humble, you need to allow other leaders to lead’

Geoff Molson, 45, is president and CEO of CH Group Limited Partnership, owner of the Montreal Canadiens, Bell Centre and Evenko, and chairman of the board of Molson Coors Brewing Co.  My father taught me to never expect anything that others wouldn’t be able to expect as well. In Montreal, with the name Molson, you could very easily put yourself in a position where you would expect things in life. My father’s advice has served me well and has led me to work harder and achieve things, but also be humble and not be different from anyone else.
