Transportation Minister questioned by Brian Masse about Ambassador Bridge during QP
Windsor West NDP MP Brian Masse had his chance to question Transportation Minister Marc Garneau about the approval of the Ambassador Bridge replacement span during Question Period Monday.
- 'Marc Garneau quite frankly was a jerk': Masse blasts Liberals at bridge meeting
- Ambassador Bridge officials say they have 'final permit' to build new span
Masse, who last week in a town hall called Minster Garneau a "jerk" for the way he handled the announcement of the approval, asked why the government approved "a new expanded bridge between Canada and the United States in our community with zero consultations."
He said the "surprise announcement" was made while the Gordie Howe International Bridge project was in a state of "confusion and chaos."
Minister Garneau answered saying: "Of course, our commitment to the Gordie Howe Bridge is 100%."
He said that there are a number of "very specific conditions" on the replacement span that the owners of the Ambassador Bridge must follow and said that has been in touch with Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens.
