Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority’s Interim Chair Says New Law Firm Duties Won’t Impact His Role

Windsor Star reports, “Former local MPP Dwight Duncan has taken on added responsibilities with his Toronto law firm, but said Tuesday [November 15] it will have no impact on his role as interim chairman of the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority.” According to the report, Duncan works for business law firm McMillan LLP, which “announced Tuesday it will create McMillan Vantage Policy Group which will provide ‘government relations counsel, policy and regulatory analysis and strategic communications’ to private sector business clients.” The report adds, “Duncan said his duties with the firm have never included lobbying. Under the new entity, lobbyists are being brought in to work alongside him, he said. Because of his role as interim chairman of the bridge authority, the law firm steers away from any work for companies within the consortiums vying to win the contract to build the Gordie Howe International Bridge, Duncan said.”
