Keen pricing saw Canada though the worst effects of last year's SARS outbreak, according to Travelpack product director Peter Allen, allowing most operators to finish the year either level or slightly ahead of 2002. Nevertheless, while fears over travelling to Toronto may be a thing of the past, the lion's share of new product for this year is based either in the Rockies and the west or Quebec and the Maritimes.
