I do not understand why the SIU is taking so long to investigate this matter?

Time to open up Easport

It did take a very long time then add in the Skyway closure due to accidents and when Eastport did open, the huge back log had to go over the Lift Bridge. The construction on the entrance to Eastport on the Burlington side just added to the mess. Lucky there wasn't any marine traffic.
