OTTAWA, Ont. — Canada and the US have signed a Memorandum of Cooperation (MOC) to maintain a high priority on the development of enhanced capacity of the border-crossing infrastructure in the Detroit-Windsor region.
The MOC follows the direction given at the North American Leaders’ Summit in Montebello, Que. on Aug. 21 by the Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the US President George W. Bush.
“Canada is experiencing the second-largest period of economic expansion in Canadian history. That is why the Government of Canada is committed to developing additional border capacity along the Windsor-Detroit corridor,” said Lawrence Cannon, Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities. “It is a crucial support to the continued growth of the economies of Canada and the United States.”
Transport Canada and the US Department of Transportation will coordinate with interested federal agencies and with provincial and state partners to strengthen collaboration on this critical project.
