Border tensions rise for Northwest Angle residents: 'We don't matter'
April 12, 2021
DULUTH – Paul Colson was ready to raise a ruckus - and risk arrest - if Canadian border officials denied him entry on his drive home to the Northwest Angle on Tuesday.
After almost 13 months of pandemic-prompted border restrictions, which recently grew more onerous, Colson said he and other residents feel "we are dispensable. We don't matter."
"I'll just block the road, they can throw me in jail," he said. "I've got to do something."
