Canada vs US Military Tussle Developing

It could be the biggest battle between Canada and the U.S since 1812.

Organizers of the annual Peace Pull tug of war between Fort Frances and International Falls are working to have a match pitting the Canadian military against the U.S. National Guard.

Fort Frances Councillor Rick Wiedenhoeft says there is interest from both sides to take part in the annual tug of war challenge, and has even caught the attention of officials in Washington and Ottawa.

The tussle would be one of three events to take place during the July 2nd event.

It would also commemorate the 150 anniversary of the War of 1812.
