“The Atlantic’s” reports on a Windsor, Ontario, neighborhood where “rows upon rows” of houses owned by Matty Moroun’s Ambassador Bridge company sit empty as the magnate pursues his ambition to build a second span and compete with the proposed Gordie Howe crossing. The report notes, “Discussions around the replacement of his Ambassador Bridge have been lengthy and combative over concerns that the 89-year-old structure can’t handle the predicted 4.3 percent annual increase in border traffic through 2035.” [Broken link deleted.] The article adds that the Ambassador Bridge “generates about $60 million a year in profit from tolls.”
