Canada blockade 'poses a risk' to auto supply chain -WH

"We are watching this very closely," White House spokesperson Jen Psaki said at a news briefing. "The blockade poses a risk to supply chains, for the auto industry."

The nearly two-week long protests against COVID-19 pandemic mandates and other restrictions have at times this week halted or sharply slowed traffic at the Ambassador Bridge that connects Detroit, Michigan, and Windsor, Ontario. The bridge, Canada's busiest link to the United States, accounts for about 25% of trade between Canada and the United States as it is used to transport vehicles and parts and agricultural products.
