WINDSOR, Ont. — An Ontario Superior Court justice is set to hear an application on Friday (Feb. 11) for an injunction that would bar protesters from blocking the Ambassador Bridge border crossing in Windsor, Ont.

The Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association applied for the injunction, and the City of Windsor was granted intervenor status.

Geoffrey Morawetz adjourned proceedings on Thursday, saying that while the matter was of great economic consequence, a ruling outlawing the protests would be serious and the defendants should be given a chance to respond.

They’re due to resume at noon.

The Ambassador Bridge connecting Windsor and Detroit is considered the busiest commercial land border crossing in North America.

The protest is one of several demonstrations happening in the country over COVID-19 measures.
