The border closure is having a big effect on one American town and Canada is being asked to step in. Point Roberts, Washington isn't connected to the U.S. by land because B.C. is basically trapping it. So, the state's governor sent a letter to Justin Trudeau for help.\nPoint Roberts is located at the end of a B.C. peninsula and it's not connected to Washington in any way but it's part of the U.S. because it's below the 49th parallel.\nThe only way to get to other parts of the state and the U.S., in general, is by going through Canada.\nWith the border between the two countries being closed since March, the approximately 1,300 people living in the town can't leave.\nWashington Governor Jay Inslee sent Trudeau a letter about this situation.\nHe said that because of the isolation from the state and the U.S., services are limited in Point Roberts so residents usually travel into Canada or through to Washington to get things they need.\nInslee believes that his government and Trudeau's government can come up with a solution that helps the residents travel through B.C.\nHe noted that one possible solution is something similar to the transit pass that lets Americans come through Canada to go to Alaska.\nThat would allow Point Roberts residents to go between the two countries by displaying the pass at the Peace Arch Border Crossing.\nView this post on Instagram Gatekeepers of Point Roberts A post shared by Leonard Harrison (@lharrisoniii) on Jul 21, 2019 at 5:41pm PDT\n"Over the years, we have creatively worked together to solve problems and realize so many opportunities," Inslee said in his letter.\nSo, he hopes that Trudeau will collaborate with him on this.\nWashington's governor isn't set on the transit pass as the only solution for this odd situation. He's open to any ideas that Canada has.\nView this post on Instagram Standing on the edge of Canada and looking out.
