Unfortunately….the News Anchor from Tulsa did not do his homework! It is not called Lord Selkin Highway! It is called “Lord Selkirk Highway”!!
Provincial Trunk Highway 75 (PTH 75, also officially known as the Lord Selkirk Highway) is the main highway from Winnipeg, Manitoba, to the Canada–U.S. border, where it connects with Interstate 29.The Canadian government closed the Emerson East border crossing in 2003 to consolidate resources; the American port of entry at Noyes followed soon after. Motorists wishing to travel US 75 must now take Interstate 29 south to North Dakota Highway 59 at Pembina, North Dakota, then east to Minnesota State Highway 171, which connects to U.S. 75. In 2012, the provincial government officially re-routed PTH 75 to extend all the way to the Emerson-Pembina border crossing, which eliminated a short stretch of highway known as PTH 29. The old stretch of PTH 75 through Emerson is now part of an extended Provincial Road 200.
He also didn’t explain to them that this will get you to the Canada/USA border crossing, but you will be going into Manitoba, which probably wouldn’t be the best crossing to get over.
If they don’t have their paperwork all done to immigrate to Canada, if they haven’t been given the go ahead to come to Canada and if they have had any felony…including a DUI….they will be escorted back to the USA.
It’s not so easy as some think to cross the border into Canada to live.
