CBSA Port to US Soil? Akwesasne – Seaway International Bridge Crisis UPDATE November 29, 2009

uscdn L I N K Michael Peeling in the Standard Freeholder is reporting some scuttle butt that the CBSA port of entry into Cornwall via the Seaway International bridge may be moving to Roosevelttown NY.

Mohawk Council of Akwesasne Grand Chief Mike Mitchell has heard unofficial talk from his sources, whom he would not name, that serious consideration is being given to setting up a permanent Canadian port of entry near the U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility in Roosevelttown, New York.

Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry MP Guy Lauzon said using the old U.S. customs building – replaced recently by a much larger, $70-million facility – has always been a viable option on the table among close to 20 others.”

Is Guy talking about the building that was ripped down months ago?  That makes sense!   Sounds like the plebiscite is perhaps causing a bit of discussion and movement.  Something has to be done before real snow falls.

What do you think Cornwall?
