A move to rename the bridge over the River Canard has hit a snag.

History buffs in Amherstburg would like to see the River Canard Bridge renamed to reflect more of our local history.
Especially as it relates to the war of 1812.
Carolyn Davies is one of the people behind the request.
She'd like the bridge renamed after John Dean and James Hancock, 2 British soldiers who came under attack by Americans in a skirmish at the outset of the War of 1812.
Davies is a councillor in Amherstburg - she also sits on the Heritage committee.
Last night, she went before Amherstburg council for it's approval of the name change.
She didn't get it.
Carolyn Davies joins me on the line this afternoon.
