CANADIAN BORDER CROSSING PROPOSED REDUCTION OF HOURS OF OPERATION



LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!
 The City of Thief River Falls has voiced its opposition to the proposed reduction of the hours of operation of the Port of Lancaster crossing into Canada. 
The proposed reduction of hours of operation will dramatically reduce cross-border traffic and will negatively affect the ability of our Canadian friends to visit our community.
