I am still puzzled why this council and the federal government wont get involved in changing the location of the toll booth to the southern portion of Cornwall Island allowing free access to Cornwall Island for people of Cornwall and Canada.
Our president of the Chamber of Commerce has clearly stated that are businesses have decreased their sales by at least 25%. I have approached our federal member to no avail, he claims that it is not his responsibility. I truly believe that the bridge federation is a federal responsibility.
I believe that all citizens including our neighbours on the Island should also become involved. Mohawk children are attending American schools due to long wait times on the bridge. Our native friends are also purchasing appliances in the USA as they cannot get these appliances serviced due to long waits on the bridge. Cab drivers don’t want to attend on the Island as they loose one hour of cab fair. Citizens of Cornwall cannot attend sports events and visitations to museums or Nursing homes on the Island without paying a toll of $6.50 to attend events on Cornwall Island which is part of Canada.
