Mark Norman, chair of the Canadian Automotive Partnership Council (CAPC) trade infrastructure committee and president and CEO of DaimlerChrysler Canada, says a City of Windsor report provides an effective strategy for improving border traffic. Norman says he applauds the report by Sam Schwartz for the City of Windsor aimed at border traffic solutions at Canada’s busiest border crossings. “The Schwartz report outlines short to medium range improvements to the Windsor/Detroit border crossings,” said Norman. “The recommendations will allow the Let’s Get Windsor/Essex Moving Strategy to move to Phase II with improvements to major traffic arteries.” The Schwartz Report would increase route flexibility and optimize existing capacity while increasing needed roadbed. A cooperative resolution with governments at all levels and to work expeditiously towards a plan as proposed by the Schwartz report will be in the best interests of all Windsorites and Canadians, he says, adding that Canada is one of the top automotive net exporting countries in the world, exporting 60% more than it buys, and needs to take a continuous improvement approach to the border in order to sustain and grow that manufacturing leadership.
