“As Minister responsible for the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority, I have accepted Michael Cautillo’s resignation from the position of President and Chief Executive Officer of the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority, effective December 8, 2017. Mr. Cautillo was appointed as the Authority’s first President and Chief Executive Officer in August, 2014. He had been on a leave of absence since August 24, 2017 before tendering his resignation.”
