Fewer Canadians plan to travel in Canada this year for a couple of reasons, one is recent weather conditions in many parts of the country and the other is the expense.

There are fewer people in Canada that have travel plans for this year; one of the reasons is because too many parts of the country recently experienced some of the worst weather ever,another is that travelling is expensive.

Veronica Baig said...

ZEINAB:Better, but there is still a punctuation issue;-)
SARA:Thank you:-)
YOSUA: There's some ambiguity here--what is expensive? Depending on how you reword this, you may need to check the punctuation.
VALERIE:You have made a good start, but there are a few things to think about: word confusion (1 wrong word, and 1 word form), 2 gerunds together (planning travelling), a comparative problem;-)
PEGGY: A good solution:-)
