WINDSOR, Ont. — The City of Windsor is calling upon the provincial and federal governments to help smooth the flow of goods through the country’s busiest border crossing.
A resolution tabled by Coun. Charlie Hotham received unanimous support.
The resolution read “…The City of Windsor requests that the province of Ontario accelerate the proposed bi-national transportation study which would provide additional border crossing options for the Windsor/Detroit area and that the Premier of Ontario…and the Minister of Transportation be notified of the city’s request.”
Mayor Mike Hurst is concerned that the flow of goods will get worse once additional customs and immigration personnel from the U.S. side are restored to their original levels.
"If you think the situation is bad today, look out," Hurst tells local media.
Throughout the month of September, traffic through the border crossing has decreased to below 35 per cent of the normal daily volumes.
