The Vancouver International airport is in Richmond - it's won a bunch of awards. I'm wondering if that's how it made the list (e.g. stopovers). In terms of attractions: the night market, a bird sanctuary, Iona Beach, Finn Slough (one of the last tidal water communities in NA), the fishing village of Steveston, the Fraser River, a decent bike network, and some of the best dim sum outside China.

Would've thought Tofino. But I guess if you're staying near the airport, you're visiting Richmond.

How is Dildo, Newfoundland not on this list?!?!

Especially in the summer during “Dildo Days”?

A suburb of a city already on the list seems to be pushing it. A lot of international travelers technically go to Newark too.

My guess is that Windsor only makes this list from people driving across the border from Detroit to go to the hospital

I grew up in Windsor. Lots of Detroiters work there and vice versa. American 19 and 20 year olds love swinging over to drink legally as well.

As you can see no one has an answer.

I drove through the heart of the city once.

There are a ton of international students that go to university or college in London and actually a large population of foreigners in general (roughly 95,000 immigrants or 29% of total population). My best guess is arrivals and visits for international students and foreigners make up the majority of international hotel stays.

Drive through from the Midwestern US to Toronto. Same reason Windsor is on the list (although it's probably higher because of cross-border shopping and casinos). I grew up in Windsor, lots of Michigan/Ohio/Illinois plates around.

Richmond should definitely be removed. It's very confusing to consider a suburb of Vancouver (which is technically its own city) while not considering suburbs for any of the other cities. I'm from BC and was racking my brains over what the last city could be - it never occurred to me that Richmond would be counted separately.

Agreed, if Richmond is counted because of the airport, then Mississauga should as well.

But Toronto's airport hotels are mainly in Toronto, not Mississauga

Admittedly though, Pearson itself is in Mississauga, so nearly 100% of the international travelers to Toronto are going to "visit" Mississauga

Yup; same way that people are only going to Canmore to go to Banff, or Richmond to go to Vancouver. There are some very, very silly inclusions on this list, to be sure.
