During Obama Administration, Canada Was Forced to Pay for Bridge and Even U.S. Customs Plaza

Maybe Trump really can get Mexico to pay for the wall. After all, Canada was made to pay for a bridge back in the days of Hope & Change:

The Canadian government has failed to get Washington to pay the roughly $250-million (U.S.) needed to build a U.S. Customs plaza on the Michigan side of a new Detroit-Windsor bridge.

Ottawa will be responsible for financing the entire cost of the $2.1-billion bridge, including access roads on both sides of the Detroit River as well as U.S. border installations, under a deal announced [in 2015].

Canadians should have taken up terrorism. Obama would have been happy to hand them a couple hundred $million.

Ottawa has long argued that the U.S. government should pay for its own infrastructure, given that Canada is already covering virtually the entire cost of the bridge as well as access roads on both sides of the border. The project, which spans the busiest trade crossing between the two countries, is slated to be completed in 2020.

Canada wanted the USA to stop being so stingy. However…

In the end, Washington agreed only to staff, operate and maintain the Customs plaza in Detroit.

Likewise, Washington will maintain the wall, after Mexico finances construction. Pay up, SeΓ±or PeΓ±a Nieto!

Pena-Nieto
Says he won’t pay.

On tips from DM and Byron.

    They did. Ever hear of Celine Dion, Nickleback, Seth Rogen, Justin Bieber?

    Y’know. I’m not convinced that Mexico SHOULD pay. Be nice if they did. Be even nicer if the wall worked, but I ain’t holding my breath.

    What would work? Annexing Mexico and overrunning the gangs with fire and the sword. Probably won’t happen. The country would need to be in a drastically different head space.

    Trump’s TACO TAX sounds good to me !!!! (I don;t eat mexican food – to avoid montezuma’s revenge!!!)

    No offense people, but border control is more of an priority that who pays for it.

  6. Patti says:

    I think it would make more sense to forget the whole “we’ll make Mexico pay for it”. If we want the border secured (and I do) it’s our responsibility to build it. That being said, how about applying all the money we confiscate from the drug dealers and even assess a fee when they send money to Mexico.

  7. Rob Nowak says:

    Obama’s entire motivation behind this was that he perceived the Canadian prime minister at the time as a white conservative male. “We don’t like ‘guys like you’, so screw the pipeline, a new bridge, talks, agreements…whatever” Disgusting.

  8. KHarn says:

    Sounds like better diplomacy than what’s come out of Washington city.

    ..Shia LeBeouf, Rosie O’Donnell, Whoopie Goldberg, Michael Moore. πŸ˜‰

  10. Stosh says:

    If they don’t want to pay, we’ll have to do it on the cheap and leave out the doors.

    Better idea, just give them Detroit and Dearbornistan.

    Don’t forget about that America hating (but LOVES our money) piece of shit jim carey. He made that completely disgusting, disrespectful video attempting to denigrate the great American icon Charleton Heston.
    I’ll never forgive that foreign, limp wristed, sperm burping faggot for that stunt.

    So Nieto won’t meet with Trump because of the wall issue.

    The wall isn’t even built yet and it is already keeping Mexicans out!

    Jim Carrey is the president of Mexico?

    http://www.monologuedb.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Jim-Carrey-as-Ace-Ventura-Pet-Detective.jpg

    That would explain a lot.

    Ooh- thanks for the reminder. I had forgotten about that loser…

    I’ve started a list of these morons, lest I forget who to fully ignore (or, as the ‘cool’ kids like to say, “#resist”) until such time they repent and beg forgiveness for their many idiotic sins.
