Detroit, Bankrupt and in Weakened Condition, Invaded by Forces from Neighboring Windsor, Ontario

Windsor, Ontario, a relatively small city across the Canadian border from Detroit, launched a full-fledged military assault on the troubled American city of Detroit early this morning. The surprise attack came two hours before dawn, and by daybreak the invading forces had captured significant portions of the city.

"We've had our eye on Detroit for years," Windsor mayor Cam Wilson-Hyatt said around 8 AM in an interview with the BBC. "We've been watching it decline for sixty years. We knew we had to be patient, but at the same time we knew this day would eventually arrive."

Wilson-Hyatt said the Detroit had a lot of natural resources and assets, primarily empty housing and commercial structures. He said the idea was to immediately take over and occupy much of that empty space, and to eventually move portions of Windsor's growing population into the buildings, both residential and commercial.

"This is a complete takeover. There is no turning back. Once we have occupied the city, and have the voting power in place, we will be in the driver's seat to implement our long-term plan."

Wilson-Hyatt declined to give more specifics about the long-term plan, but hinted that it would include mass relocation of current residents. Asked where those lifelong residents of Detroit might eventually be relocated, he smiled and declined to comment specifically, saying only that, "The Northwest Territories still had a lot of empty space."
