The new Tunnel Plaza on the Canadian side of the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel adds more entrance space to help reduce traffic congestion as initially the entrance was directly off Goyeau Street, a main downtown street. Now Goyeau Street is permanently barricaded for one block from Park Street, where the tunnel exit from Detroit is located, up to Wyandotte Street. Goyeau Street continues south again away from the Detroit River where the downtown MacDonald's is located (Wyandotte at Goyeau Streets) across from the new plaza. You must keep in mind Detroit is geographically situated north of Windsor. Figure that one out. Work on Windsor's new tunnel plaza should be fully completed shortly. ~ Mike Elliott windsorwindow
The Salvation Army Grace Hospital is no more. To look at this video it almost seems as though Grace Hospital never existed in the first place but we all know that it did. The era has changed and a new leaf has been turned over. It feels sad in a way but time marches on and though Grace Hospital is forever gone it will live on in history as a pleasant memory. ~ Mike Elliott windsorwindow

This is a part of what went down during the Coming Home Music Festival held at the Festival Plaza in downtown WINDSOR (6 September 2012).
NOTE: For some reason YouTube will not list this video in a standard Google search yet all of the attached tags are appropriate for it to be displayed along with other videos shot by other entities (like the Windsor Star) on the same day. ~ Mike Elliott /on vimeo

Windsor continues to make all V8 engines for the Ford Motor Company. The 5.0 litre, fuel efficient engine is used in all Shelby Mustangs, select Mustangs and the very popular F-150 truck. Total production numbers range to near 1000 engines a day.
Also in Windsor, Chrysler Canada is the world home of the Dodge Caravans. These vehicles are so popular Windsor is working three shifts a day and can barely keep up with the huge demand.
A large spike in attendees was registered for the Remembrance Day ceremonies at the cenotaph in downtown Windsor this year. Young people were seen in droves as it is believed they are more interested in Remembrance Day activities especially after the recent loss of a local soldier who was fighting for Canada in Afghanistan. This year's attendance was greeted with sunny, clear-blue skies and milder temperatures than normal.
