Canada has a new Consul General in Detroit. Douglas George has more than 30 years of experience in Canada’s foreign service, including working on the creation of the World Trade Organization and representing his country in places like Jamaica and Kuwait.

Now, he represents Canadian interests in Michigan and three other states. Current State’s Scott Pohl caught up with him for a conversation about his career and the role of the Canadian consulate in Detroit.

Douglas George says the major focus of the Canadian government in the Midwest these days is the push for a new international bridge crossing the Detroit River.

Scott Pohl is a general assignment news reporter and produces news features and interviews. He is also an alternate local host on NPR's "Morning Edition."
