CBSA looking for permanent home after nixing plan to share a new building with NRP
The mayor of Niagara Falls still holding out hope the Canadian Border Services Agency will reconsider a decision not to share a new building with Niagara Regional Police.
The CBSA has temporarily moved its regional office to downtown Niagara Falls, in the building once slated to be home to the Ontario Tourism Ministry.
Jim Diodati says he welcomes the move because it brings 35 well paid employees into the core at a time when the city is trying to revitalize the once busy downtown area.
But he says because it is a temporary move it gives the city time to ask the CBSA to reconsider its original decision not to partner on a new building with police.
