City and CBSA to Enter Financial Agreement

City and CBSA to Enter Financial Agreement

The Standard Freeholder is reporting on an agreement between the CBSA and the City.   L I N K

“City council is expected to enter into an agreement with the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) tonight which will see the municipality reimbursed for expenses incurred since the facility was opened July 13, as well as any future ones.

“I think with this agreement anything (CBSA) asks us to do, we’re going to be fully compensated for financially,” said Coun. Andre Rivette. “This would include any past work done by city employees or future requests.”

Grant added that the proposed agreement doesn’t seem to have any time lines, however, council will be encouraging the CBSA and the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne to reach a settlement.

“Once the weather gets bad, even from safety perspective of lineups on the bridge, we need to see an end to this quickly.”

Next time you are at the tent Jamie inquire about how much Back rent CBSA owes, I am under the assumption that it is a large amount.

Well then let me clarify my comment, either the CBSA, or the Government, that pulls the strings somewhere along the lines, should make restitution to the fair citizens and business’ of Cornwall, for all the lost business suffered, due to what seems to be their (Government or CBSA’s) inaction on the matter from the beginning.
