Canada-US border dispute
Canada-US Border Dispute
For generations, a woman's family lived on a farm in Manitoba on the border with North Dakota in an area that was in dispute between Canada and the U.S. One day her grown kids came in and told her that the dispute had been settled, the international boundary line ran right through their farm, and the family could choose whether to be Canadians or Americans.
After some thought, the woman declared that they should become Americans. Her reason was that she couldn't stand another Canadian winter!
