The US-Canada Border Splits This Road Down The Middle

  • Published on: 28 May 2018
  • Rue Canusa (or Canusa Avenue) is a street that's split in two by a border: the northern part is in Stanstead, Canada, and the southern part is in Derby Line, USA — and border crossings here aren't as easy as they used to be.

    I cannot thank Mayor Dutil enough -- he spent two hours giving me a tour of Stanstead and the border, and this video wouldn't look half as good without all his help. He also talked to border control when they arrived and asked why I was filming...!

    There is hardly any difference between these 2 countries, border is more of a guideline. Unlike Australia and New Zealand, they need 2000kms water to separate them off, you need a buffer like that in case New Zealand invades Australia with sudden lightening strike :P

    I see people from other countries flexing how they can freely pass borders 😂😂I’m sorry but I like the fact that Mexicans and Canadians can’t mosey into our country and vice versa

    We should have a wall on the Canadian border. If we don't build one, all their dangerous retirees will spend their vacations in Florida crowing up buffet lines. Horary Trump. Hate who you can!

    If the people on the other side of that road were brown there would be a certain group of people yelling "build a wall".

    Ok, that is stupid! Several cities around the world are divided like this. Normally what they do is they surround the whole two cities with a wall and create a Customs office on the city exits on both sides.
