    Border delays concern Niagara Falls councillor

    2 Comments

    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.

    From Niagara This Week:

    Wayne Gates is calling on the province to commit to a timeline to extend GO Train service to Niagara.

    “The inclusion of GO to Niagara in the 2016 Budget was a positive step forward and highlights the hard work done by local mayors, councillors, and our Regional Chair,” the Niagara Falls MPP said. “The expansion of GO Train services to Niagara is not about scoring political points.”
