Wild Horse port to receive upgrades


MP LaVar Payne made a presentation this week at the Wild Horse Border Crossing on behalf of Steven Blaney, Canada’s Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness. The Federal Government will invest an estimated $113.65 million in improvements to infrastructure in the Prairie region including the Wild Horse port of entry. Payne says that improvements to port of entry facilities help ensure the free flow of legitimate travel and trade across Canadian borders. Cypress Medicine hat MLA Drew Barnes called the infrastructure investment a welcome step in building Alberta’s southern economy.
