3rd Lane Still Not Operational at temporary CBSA Crossing – Seaway International Bridge Crisis- December 27, 2009 – Cornwall Ontario – Akwesasne

3rd Lane Still Not Operational at temporary CBSA Crossing – Seaway International Bridge Crisis- December 27, 2009 – Cornwall Ontario – Akwesasne

Cornwall Ontario – Michael Peeling is reporting in the Standard Freeholder that the 3rd lane of the temporary border crossing into Cornwall Ontario allowed an Ambulance to reroute rather than open the 3rd lane which according to CBSA officials is supposed to be open and alleviate traffic delays at this crossing point.

“The Canada Border Services Agency isn’t sticking to its claim the third lane of the temporary customs plaza is available for letting emergency vehicles into Cornwall.

On Saturday at around 1:30 p.m., an ambulance coming from Cornwall Island could be seen driving north on the bridge, on its way to clear the port, while an official stopped traffic waiting to clear the southbound toll booth at the Cornwall end of the bridge.

The northbound ambulance was allowed to use the southbound lane to clear the port, bypassing a customs inspection, and make a U-turn onto Brookdale to head south into Cornwall.

The CBSA did not open the third lane “to facilitate the movement of any emergency vehicles when needed.”

The lane was closed, with construction pylons and two CBSA vehicles blocking it.”

What do you think Cornwall?

    Why do you continue to call this bridge issue a crisis? What are you going to do when a real crisis comes along and you have nothing to call it? 🙂

    Merry Christmas to you my obtuse friend. 🙂 A crisis is a crisis, is a crisis. If another arises it too shall be called a crisis.

    Yeah, you could also blame it on Stephen Harper and the Conservatives like you usually do…

    Good idea. You’re probably correct Ontarian 🙂
