nonsense, it's unbelievable, it's ridiculous. Does anybody have a

commenting on a lawsuit filed against the city, the Canadian
federal government and the Toronto Port Authority over a decision
not to continue construction of a bridge between Toronto and

bridge project. REGCO says the twice-approved bridge is vital to
the startup airline's plan for operating out of TCCA.
