unyon: We should just build the goddamned US customs plaza as well and then lease it back to you, fully staffed with Canadians.
brantgoose: Invading? They're paying 15/16ths of the cost of a major project which will benefit both countries immensely, not to mention the benighted, soon-to-be bankrupt city of Detroit, by removing bottlenecks to the multi-billion dollar a day cross border trade. They're being opposed largely by the owners of a rival bridge that might temporarily lose revenues from backed up traffic on both sides of the border. They are also putting EVEN MORE money into the deal because the government of Detroit, the State and the US have failed to buy the land on the US side of the river, dragging their feet on a sweetheart deal that's barely costing them a penny.The landowners on the US side are asking way more than the patch of land is worth and thus stalling the deal for yet more Canadian money. The land would certainly be seized by emminent domain if maybe, say, some Americans had more money invested.Maybe it would be a good idea to encourage the governments and Americans to put a little more money into the pot.

And Americans obviously don't have the money, so Boss Hogg's going to do squat except sit on the project until they've squeezed blood out of every last stone or pebble.I think, that absent any American money in this very promising project, they should, as a show of good faith, plow down any buildings that happen to be in the way now and call that virtual cash and give the land to the people who are carrying the gold ... for what it is worth now, which is nada.Where the fark is Tammany Hall when you need them? That's the question you should be asking yourselves because obviously the other side of the river doesn't need them. They've got the money in the bag and their act together. They ar ...
lasercannon: Good thing America has been preparing for this for years. Every single Tim Horton's has at least one American sleeper agent. At a moments notice tasteless chemicals will be injected into every Double-Double and Timbit killing almost every single Canadian. The survivors will rounded up and forced to live in former NHL arenas, now work houses.//American will conquer the evil empire that is Canada.//// If you are Canadian and reading this, please don't tell other Canadians about this invasion plan, it would be very rude.
