Why a Billionaire Tried to Stop This Bridge

The Gordie Howe International Bridge will transform the US-Canada border- but it was almost never built.

Remember Manuel Moroun, the guy who owned the Ambassador Bridge? Well, he also owned the duty free shops at the end of the bridge and tunnels – because why not own it all?

Moroun made a lot of money off this trade corridor, and he didn’t want someone else taking potential traffic away from his empire. So when a new bridge was proposed back in 2004, he did everything he could to stop it.

He sued the governments of Canada and Michigan to try and block its construction.
