WINDSOR, Ont. — The federal government has confirmed that it is seeking a private partner to help it construct a new border crossing in Windsor.
Federal Transport Minister Lawrence Cannon addressed the Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships, where he said the government wants to work with a private company to increase border crossing capacity in Windsor.
“We are experiencing the second-longest period of economic expansion in Canadian history. That’s why our government is investing in modern, world-class infrastructure projects that foster a stronger economy, a cleaner environment and safer, more prosperous communities,” said Cannon. “The new Windsor-Detroit border crossing is clearly a priority. A stronger border crossing will be good for Ontario, and good for the country.”
He said the feds hope to find a private sector partner to design, build, finance and operate the Canadian inspection plaza and a portion of the new crossing.
