Double Dose – 01.11.12
This next video has a bit of story behind it; watch the video first.
The single bridge connecting Windsor, Ontario with Detroit, Michigan is privately owned and carries 25% of Canadian-US trade. This bridge is falling apart and has had to be closed multiple times. The Canadians have decided to pay for an entirely new bridge that they want to give to Michigan for free – but the dude who owns the original bridge has managed to get a ballot initiative together to protect his monopoly. Now he’s using ads like the one above to convince people that this new bridge will take their jobs or whatever. I am stunned every day by how ruthless these people are.
