Is Canada also going to pay for the 40 homes, churches and businesses that will have to be purchased on this side for the bridge? Or the road construction, wages of contractors, wages of toll takers, upkeep, permits, licenses and lawyers?

We have overcrowded schools, cops and firemen laid off but have money for a bridge? And all the while Snyder wants us to get rid of Unions, vote no on the wind turbines that would hire workers?

I have talked to Canadians and altho they would like less traffic on the current bridge, they do not want to get stuck with the cost of this bridge. I guess Snyder does not care about our friendship we have had with Canada all these years as long as he gets his way.

I vote NO on Prosposal 1 and Yes and all of the others.
