Just because...

Electing NDP MP's has done so well for Windsor over the last 3 to 4 years.
Mention in speech buoys mayor

Masse doesn't share Francis's optimism. "I think why they mentioned it at all is a shot at the province," Masse said, suggesting the mention pressures the province to make more of a commitment toward a Windsor border solution.

Masse said he fears the province will "cheap out" on the access route to the new crossing, approving something less than what Windsor is demanding with its $1.6-billion GreenLink proposal. And the federal government would then feel justified to do the same on the crossing itself and plaza.

"It's always nice to be mentioned, but what is needed is real action."

I couldn't agree more Brian, but the biggest problem is, you can never deliver any "action". Even when you had the opportunity, with Paul Martin, to leverage solutions for Windsor you and Joe decided to vote in lockstep with your party instead of your riding.
