Border delays concern Niagara Falls councillor
From Niagara This Week:
Wayne Thompson got a first-hand look Sunday at delays being experienced by motorists crossing into Canada at the Rainbow Bridge.
“They were lined up for two, three blocks back on both sides,” Thomson said. “It was unbelievable.”
While it took him just 20 minutes to cross into Niagara Falls, N.Y., he faced a 90-minute wait up his return to Canada.
He said that while he holds a NEXUS card and normally would use the Whirpool Bridge to cross into Niagara Falls, N.Y., he was with his grandson, who isn’t a cardholder.
“We had to drive over the Rainbow Bridge and it was loaded,” he said.
