(Northwest Angle)


I wasn't familiar with the NW Angle, that's pretty interesting.

I say sell to Canada.



[Because of laws restricting fishing, some residents of the Northwest Angle suggested leaving the United States and joining Canada in 1997. The following year, U.S. Representative Collin Peterson of Minnesota proposed legislation to allow the residents of the Northwest Angle, which is part of his district, to vote on seceding from the United States and joining Canada. This angered the leaders of Red Lake Indian Reservation, which holds most of the Northwest Angle's land.  The mock secession succeeded in getting fishing regulations better synchronized across

these international (fresh) waters.]
