Baird Interview: Help For The Bridge Company DRIC Lawsuit

It is a fascinating interview that tells us everything about what Canada really wants and why if you listen closely.

Helping out poor Michigan----BS!

If you have been a faithful reader of this BLOG, it is no surprise. It is all about control of US land ports by Canada, a project that has been ongoing for a decade---actually much longer, about 50 years. Moreover, it has been corrupted by money, big money, to help out P3 operators to rip off the public of billions over the next 50-100 years.

It is a disgrace at the highest levels of politics too.

I guess that Matty Moroun did not take Cliff Sutts free legal advice that his lawsuits are futile:
  • "Veteran Windsor lawyer Cliff Sutts says legal action by Ambassador Bridge owner Matty Moroun against the Canadian and U.S. federal governments is a "desperate" last-ditch effort to win the fight over control of cross-border tolls.

    "It seems they have really stretched this and have made some misstatements of facts in law and that's puzzling," said Sutts of the federal lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Washington against both governments claiming interference with his bid to build a twin span.

    "It strikes me as a desperate attempt to keep the cause alive. There are a lot of misstatements that might be attributable to putting together a pretty complex statement in a short period."

Mind you, Cliff ought to know what futile means. He acts as the lawyer for Windsor's Tunnel, the competitor of the Ambassador Bridge which takes away their traffic constantly. He was also the lawyer for Mayor Edgar (aka Eddie) Francis who tried to take over the US half of the Tunnel as what was clearly now the precursor for the Ambassador Bridge takeover. He failed on that.

Now, I do not mean that Matty will get this kind of help that I saw on an employment site recently which tells me he really is serious





Instead, he will get this kind of help from Canada's own Tranport Minister John Baird who gives it all away in his interview. Just listen to this. A judge certainly will

If Wall Street shares tumble today, blame Baird. Listen to the cynicism in the tone of the reporters when they ask if the US does not have the money for this project! I guess that not only Greece is in financial trouble but the US as well thanks to what Canada has done!
