LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- A spokesman for Rick Snyder says Michigan's governor has visited Windsor, Ontario, to meet with Canadian Transport Minister Denis Lebel and other top officials about plans for another bridge across the Detroit River.
Ken Silfven tells the Detroit Free Press (http://on.freep.com/JmSeaG ) the meeting happened Thursday morning. Silfven declines to give details on the meeting, which wasn't listed on the governor's public schedule.
Silfven says Snyder's administration remains committed to a Canadian-U.S. collaboration to build a span to supplement the privately owned Ambassador Bridge between Detroit and Windsor.
The Windsor Star reports that U.S. Ambassador to Canada David Jacobson also attended the meeting.
Ambassador Bridge owner Manuel "Matty" Moroun has been fiercely battling the proposal with ads and lobbying. He seeks to add a span to his own bridge instead.
