Statement by the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi on the announcement of the Short-Listed Respondents for Gordie Howe International Bridge

January 20, 2016        Ottawa, Ontario        Infrastructure Canada

“I would like to congratulate the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority (WDBA) on announcing the short-listed respondents. This is yet another significant milestone towards the construction of the Gordie Howe International Bridge.

“Last month I had the opportunity to visit Windsor, Ontario to learn about and see first-hand the progress that WDBA has made.

“Federal infrastructure investments such as the Gordie Howe International Bridge project will, in the short-term, stimulate the local, regional and national economies by creating jobs and opportunities for businesses. In the long-term, the new bridge will contribute to the economic growth and continued prosperity of both Canada and the United States.

“The Government of Canada is committed to the Gordie Howe International Bridge and will continue to make federal infrastructure investments that help grow the economy, create good middle-class jobs and enhance productivity in local communities across Canada.”
