The closest cross-border cultural links would be BC-Washington and Atlantic Canada-New England.

Windsor/Detroit would have the strongest ties being that they are basically one metro divided by an international border.

Ah ok. I wonder if Winnipeg was where they made Al Capones bootlegged liqour during prohibition?

I thought that was Moose Jaw?


Seriously, they do play up the Al Capone connection in Moose Jaw.

What's interesting is that while this is unquestionably true, Windsor and Detroit are socio-culturally quite different, way more so than communities on either side of the border in Western Canada, or in Atlantic Canada.

Yes, that's a diplomatic way of putting things.

Not sure about that exactly, but there are "Al Capone Tunnels" and things of that nature to visit in that city.

I visited the tunnels last June and the people who run the tunnels do a good job in their presentation, and yes there are questions as to how truthful the Capone connection to Moose Jaw really is.

Moose Jaw itself is a neat town.
