Traffic increase at Windsor Port Authority a sign of city's thriving economy, says CEO
Salt and grain were the hottest commodities
An increase in traffic at the Windsor Port Authority is sign of the city's booming economy, according to the CEO of the federal agency.
David Cree said the number of ships using the port is up 10 per cent compared to the same time last year, with salt and grain as the hottest commodities.
"The economy in Windsor in the last few years is probably been the strongest it's been probably for decades," he explained. "We've had the automobile industry is going very strong, Local construction, both residential, commercial and highway, has been very strong over the last three or four years."
"When the local economy is doing as well as it is now, that's usually very good news for the port," he added.
Cree said construction of the Gordie Howe Bridge is expected to bring even more traffic in the years ahead.
