A Peace Bridge Too Far for Cuomo vs. Canada


One of the Cuomo administration’s nastiest disputes involves the jointly operated and ironically named Peace Bridge linking Buffalo and Fort Erie, Canada, with Cuomo calling the bridge a “metaphor for dysfunction” and the bridge authority’s chairman calling that “incredibly arrogant and insulting.” The New York Times points out that the conflict “is offering the wider world a glimpse of how Mr. Cuomo often wields power,” so if this example is any guide, we can expect a Cuomo 2016 platform to include a Canadian Bacon-style invasion plank.
