Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and Canadian officials this morning announced an agreement concerning improvements at the Peace Bridge.
“We prefer partnership,’’ said Gary Doer, the Canadian ambassador to the United States, of the end to the months-long dispute that seriously tested relations between New York and Canada.
“Some would say we’ve been trying to do this for 20 years,’’ Cuomo said. He said the deal is between Canada and New York and ensures that delays on the Peace Bridge Authority will no longer get in the way. “There’s nothing conceptual here ... This is a very specific plan with projects that we’re committed to.’’
