After federal transport minister Lisa Raitt dropped $2.2 million in Sault Ste. Marie, April 14, to give the Algoma Central passenger service a one-year subsidy extension, she swung by the International Bridge to cash up Ottawa’s plans for new border infrastructure.

A further $7.5 million is being earmarked for the redevelopment of the Canadian bridge plaza on top of the $44 million Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced in 2009.

The project involves expanding and redesigning the existing port of entry and building a new Canada Border Services Agency inspection building, a duty free shop and a maintenance building. The money comes from Gateways and Border Crossings Fund.
