Detroit border crossing dispute

Residents and authorities want alternative to privately owned toll bridge linking US to Canada.

    The United States and Canada share the world's longest undefended border, but a privately owned bridge between the two countries is now the focus of a sharpening dispute.

    An American billionaire has owned and operated the bridge for decades. Now both Canada and the US want to break his control over North America's busiest crossing point.
