Petition for US to give Canada a portion of Minnesota

CKTB news - Minnesota map

So far, about two-thousand people have signed an anonymous petition posted to the White House website calling for the US give the Northwest Angle in Minnesota to Canada.

The petition claims the 1,500 and 50 square kilometre parcel of land, which is actually 80% water, ended up in US hands because of a surveyor's mistake 200 years ago.

It would need 100,000 signatures to reach the threshold where it would get the attention of the Trump administration.
