U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D., Toledo) will lead a nine-person Toledo delegation to Nova Scotia to tour the site of a proposed deepwater container terminal that could become a link for international freight shipments to and from Toledo.
Aides to Miss Kaptur said the trip, starting today, will be a follow-up to discussions she, Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, and representatives of the Melford International Terminal project held in Columbus in April.
"The Melford-to-Toledo intermodal concept has great potential for economic development in our region," Miss Kaptur said. "I hope to learn more about the project and offer suggestions about how to realize Toledo's potential as a key production and distribution center." (CONT.)
