Default Michigan and Canada building the new bridge

Whats your opinion on them agreeing to build a new bridge? good or bad and why?

I say it's a good thing as it will create jobs for michigan workers, increase trade commerce and possibly reduce costs for companies who ship goods across the border. the rumor i have heard is that it will be 4 lanes both directions.

I'd say as much as the company that currently owns the bridge is fighting the new bridge, it must be a profitable business.

Matty Maroun owns lots of business' and he makes most of his money off that bridge. Central transport which is who i work for, is something like #6 for profitability the rest of it is from real-estate he owns and leases.

Only way I will use it is if it doesn't have customs agents.

The Canucks are too white, they're too many here and you can't tell who they are.
