“This artist is so huge in our community that people are travelling,” she said.

“If it’s in Vancouver, we’re coming to Vancouver, doesn’t matter. And if you think about that, isn’t that the Taylor Swift effect? Isn’t that the Beyoncé effect? Like we’re talking about major artists who create economic impact to create travel opportunities.”
