WTF?!

This genius is the President of the Bridge Company?!

What an incredibly stupid and irresponsible thing to say.

------------

HERE IS THE OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE FROM THE DETROIT INTERNATIONAL BRIDGE COMPANY:

Similar to the Detroit-Windsor tunnel threat last week, Detroit Police received a threat against the Ambassador Bridge tonight at approximately 7:55 pm. We take any threat very seriously, and set in motion the security measures the bridge has had in place since 9/11, staying in constant contact with first responders. We expect that after a thorough inspection, the bridge will open soon. We have thoroughly examined the bridge and await the completion of Detroit Police exercises for the bridge to be opened.
We cannot confirm, but suspect, that this has something to do with Canada's disinvestment at the border by cutting back on customs' agents. The Detroit International Bridge Company remains vigilant in its efforts to ensure that all those who cross the Ambassador Bridge remain safe.

The Detroit International Bridge Company is embroiled in a bitter dispute with governments on both sides of the border (and everyone else it seems) over the agreement to create a new bridge two miles downstream from the existing Ambassador Bridge. I'm not surprised that the company is posting critical comments about our government.

The Morouns are fighting the Republican governor of Michigan, the Canadian prime minister, nearly every major business in the region, and residents on both sides of the border over a proposed multibillion-dollar bridge called the New International Trade Crossing. The bridge would be two miles downriver from the Ambassador, have six lanes, a bigger customs and immigration plaza, and direct connections to a new Canadian expressway and U.S. highways. It would be a public-private partnership. Michigan and Canada would own it but a private company would fund, build, and operate it for profit. Canada would loan Michigan some $550 million to build new highways. Responsibility for paying back the loans would fall to the bridge operator.
