Tim Murphy has been appointed to the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority (WDBA) as chair of the board of directors for the Gordie Howe International Bridge project, as announced by Dominic LeBlanc, minister of intergovernmental affairs, infrastructure, and communities.

Murphy will replace Dwight Duncan, the outgoing chairperson. For the last six years he served as one of four members of the executive leadership team of McMillan, a Calgary-based business law firm. He also served as chief of staff to the prime minister of Canada and was an Ontario member of Provincial Parliament from 1993 to 1995.

“I am pleased to accept this nomination as chairperson of Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority,” says Murphy. “The Gordie Howe International Bridge project spans one of North America’s busiest trade corridors and is a testament to the highly integrated nature of the Canada-U.S. economy. I look forward to working with Minister LeBlanc and the entire team at WDBA to ensure the successful delivery of this critical piece of infrastructure.”

The government of Canada is making important infrastructure investments that create jobs, grow the economy, and build resilient and inclusive communities. The Gordie Howe International Bridge will support economic growth by improving connections between Canada and the U.S. and enabling the continuous flow of people and goods through a safe, secure, and efficient Windsor-Detroit trade corridor.

“Our Government is pleased to welcome Tim Murphy as Chairperson of Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority,” says LeBlanc. “As one of Canada’s foremost experts on infrastructure law and with decades of experience in government, Mr. Murphy will be able to leverage his considerable experience to propel the Gordie Howe International Bridge project forward to its successful completion. I look forward to working closely with him in the coming years.”
