On The Fab Four and Jason Kenney [yes, one more post on Kenney!]


Four small U.S. jurisdictions want to secede from the United States and join Canada. Elm Point and The Northwest Angle are both in Minnesota, Alburgh in Vermont and Point Roberts is in Washington. The four states accumulate a total mass of land of 417 square km and their total population comes up to 3,4222. The four pieces of land are not directly connected to the larger mass of American land and from the U.S.A, they can only be reached either by boat or by Canadian road.

More interesting trivia:

These four jurisdictions call themselves The Fab Four. They've hired a marketing company and are now up in a campaign on television and via Youtube in order to be noticed on the world's stage. 

Rather outrageous trivia:

Dearest Jason Kenney, Canadian Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism (what does that even mean?), reacted in his normal shrug-it-off-killer-humor-tone (that could literally kill) by spewing more of his homophobic thoughts: "Honestly, I don't think I want to start a war with the U.S. over some sections of land smaller than my uncle's hobby farm. And calling yourself the Fab Four, that's suspiciously flamboyant, to my mind. We've got enough of that already."

I want to post a witty comment, but that's just too ridiculous for words. I hope he gets Larry Craiged.
