If they want to run it as a business then make it convenient for the customer. If you show up at the booth with only a credit card you are told to go back to the US and find a cash machine. It's all [email protected]! That's my rant for the day...

And it's a good one!

New public bridge going up between Windsor and Detroit. The owners of the private Ambassador bridge fought it long, hard and in court. See, their bridge kinda has a monopoly on truck traffic. They managed to get all funding from the US blocked and the bridge looked like it wouldn't happen even though the Canadians had already appropriated $550 million for it. The Michigan Senate turned the money down! Eventually the project got approved and the Gordie Howe Bridge became more than a pipe dream. Construction has started and soon there will be traffic from freeway to freeway in both countries.

I think every border crossing should have one route that lets you bypass the town. Give the city streets a break from those just passing through.

Thats a nice thought but the local economy is built on that traffic going right through town to the bridge.

Well maybe I missed it, but halfway past the week and I have not seen the big announcement that was brewing on WC. Hopefully tomorrow or Friday there’s some news or just another month down the drain.

Meh, I've always figured that those who are going to stop for supplies are going to stop anyway and it will be easier and quicker for them if the ones breezing through take another route.
