Windsor City Council has authorized that an injunction be sought for the Superior Court of Justice to bring about an end to the blockage at the Ambassador Bridge.

Mayor Drew Dilkens made the announcement at a news conference Thursday afternoon.

“In legal terms, the Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association and Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers’ Association will be the main applicants, with the City of Windsor and Chamber of Commerce as supportive interveners,” said Dilkens.

“The individuals on-site are trespassing on municipal roads and, if need be, will be removed to allow for the safe and efficient movement of goods across the border.”

Late Thursday afternoon, the Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association as representative Plaintiff brought a Motion for an injunction to “restrain named and unnamed Defendants from establishing a blockade, or in any way impeding access, to the Ambassador Bridge in Windsor, Ontario.”

The City of Windsor sought and was granted leave to intervene in support of the Motion.

Following oral submissions by the Plaintiff and the City, Chief Justice Morawetz of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice adjourned the hearing of the Motion for an interim injunction until 12 noon on Friday, February 11th, 2022.
