Imported from Canada

I see US businesses realize that the Yukon and Canadian politicians are a good way to sell their product.

A photo of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his family was spotted on a random billboard in Kentucky, promoting a local canoe outfitting business — and no, it’s not a selfie.

.........

“For the record: This was taken in Yukon in 2013,” Trudeau said. “A spectacular part of this country to explore. #ExploreYukon cc: @TravelYukon.”

Great marketing. Good looking family having fun. Makes everyone want to do the same.

In the Yukon, otherwise it would be false advertising.

Cave City Kentucky. Bill board just shows a family having a great time. Doesn't say a word about where the photo was taken.

Re: Imported from Canada

But that is just it, truth in advertising should tell them that it was the Yukon not Kentucky.

 

Maybe it helps to have fun if you are Canadian too or perhaps being Prime Minister helps.

Re: Imported from Canada

Makes no different. They never claimed the photo was from a Kentucky lake. They just showed a photo on a billboard of a nice looking family have a great time while riding in a canoe. Most of the people who see the bill board will have no idea who the family is.
