  1. Well I guess the Windsor airport will not be expanding, those large 747 cargo planes will not be landing here. I guess this is good news for Eddie the city will now have revenue to pick up some of the losses from the WFCU Arena and the Aquatic Centre.

    The October municipal election can’t come to soon enough, we need a new mayor and new city council to get Windsor back on its feet.
