Windsor, hypocrisy is they name

Yet again.

The very thing Windsor accuses DRIC and the Provincial government of, has never been afforded to our neighbouring municipalities.

On a side note, anyone who thinks the $300,000.00 dollar Greenlink marketing campaign the City has been running in Windsor has had any effect on this process please meet at the corner of Riverside and Ouellette following the DRIC press conference. We're going to be holding the latest auction for shares in the Ambassador Bridge.

2/3 of GreenLink route is outside Windsor

LaSalle, Tecumseh and Lakeshore have never endorsed Windsor's GreenLink proposal because the city never consulted with them in its development, even though two-thirds of the route is actually outside Windsor.

LaSalle Mayor Gary Baxter says "it's a continuing problem" that the city comes forward with proposals at the "eleventh hour," expecting simple approval from neighbouring municipalities.

"It's never a collaboration," he said.

Baxter said GreenLink doesn't just impact on LaSalle and Tecumseh -- more of it is actually in those municipalities than in Windsor.
