Canada to retain small consular presence in Buffalo

Senator Charles Schumer said in a press release:

"The fact that the Consulate will have a continued presence in Buffalo is great news for preserving our trade and border relationship with our neighbor, and for promoting job growth and economic activity here in western New York,”.
