DETROIT (WKZO) -- Canada's Transport Minister Lisa Raitt says that Canada might pay for a U.S. Customs inspection plaza on the Detroit side of a new bridge from Detroit to Windsor. Raitt says that of course she'd prefer to see the U.S. government pay the 250-million dollars but Canada might front the cash if it will move the process forward.

In the Detroit Free Press Raitt is quoted saying, "This is a vitally important project for us and I would encourage us to have open dialogue with the United States on any of these options, quite frankly, to make it go forward."
