We have enjoyed a family cottage at Crystal Beach in Canada for many years. It is wonderful to be able to take advantage of the great relationship between our two countries and travel so freely back and forth.
This past season, with an increased interest in the racetrack and bingo in Fort Erie, traffic on the bridge has become more congested. I think the commerce between our countries is fantastic, but the delay on the bridge is not.
It seemed a resolution was in sight -- a new bridge. But like many projects in Buffalo, a grand opposition formed as plans lay near: Should it be a twin span or a signature bridge? Anyone who uses the Peace Bridge with any regularity does not care. Someone please draw straws and get it done. Buffalo lags behind because of people who put their own interests in front of the real matters at hand. Just build the bridge and stop wasting taxpayers' money.
