Neighbor to Neighbour

Flag Background

The 49th parallel is the longest international border in the world.

It functions much like a permeable membrane.

Surrendering to the seepage of symbiotic similarities; resisting the infiltration of undeniable differences.

Neighbor to neighbour.

Many such examples are chronicled in the pages and posts which follow.

This clip from CGP Grey illustrates the political origins of the 49th parallel with precision, alacrity and much-needed, lilt.
