On October 11, 2016, Canada’s Ambassador to the United States, David MacNaughton, got a first-hand look at the preliminary works currently underway at the Canadian and U.S. Ports of Entry (POE). The Ambassador was accompanied by Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority (WDBA) Interim Chair Dwight Duncan, WDBA Chief Executive Officer Michael Cautillo and Canadian Consul General in Detroit, Douglas George.  

Following the tour, the Ambassador was the keynote speaker at a Canada-United States Business Association (CUSBA) luncheon in Detroit.  At the event, which was attended by more than 150 business leaders and stakeholders from both sides of the border, Ambassador MacNaughton reaffirmed the Government of Canada’s commitment to the Gordie Howe International Bridge project and spoke on the importance of the Windsor-Detroit border to the regional and national economies of both Canada and the United States. The new bridge project, he said, “is of tremendous importance to us [Canada] and obviously it's of tremendous importance in Michigan and Detroit and to the United States of America, and we will continue to press ahead to make this a reality as soon as possible."
