Brian Masse Launches Sandwich Towne Community Input Campaign

The MP for Windsor-West has launched a community outreach campaign to get some feedback from Sandwich Towne residents and businesses.

"This is going to be quite literally this century's battle for Sandwich Towne," says MP Brian Masse.

He says given the seriousness of the developments that are taking place with the new Gordie Howe International Bridge, the twinning of the Ambassador Bridge and questions surrounding the Windsor Port Authority's plan for Ojibway Shores, now is the time to get some community input.

Over the next week, Brian Masse will be going door-to-door to get residents to fill out a survey on what they would like to see out of the Community Benefit Framework.

The Framework, created by the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority, is designed to help mitigate the impacts of the Gordie Howe International Bridge.

Masse will gather the responses and report to Ottawa.

"If at the end of the day we have an impoverish community that is quite literally trapped between $2-billion bridges, is nothing short of a disgrace for our country, our community and our city," he says.

The campaign will culminate with a rally/town hall November 18th at McKenzie Hall.
