Gov. Andrew Cuomo has insisted long and loud that Canadian members of the Peace Bridge authority that manages the Peace Bridge have shortchanged efforts to improve the American side of the bridge.
But an analysis by Investigative Post found that nearly half of the $192.5 million spent or committed by the authority's governing board since 1992 has been earmarked for work on the American side.
What's more, more funding has been committed to improve the plaza in Buffalo than in Fort Erie since the 9/11 terrorist attacks when projects on the books are factored in.
