The Only Wall Between These Border Towns Is a Row of Potted Plants

He claims the U.S. put it up a few years ago to thwart illegal crossings.While the debate rages over a wall between Mexico and the USA, one town on the border between the USA and Canada has come up with another plan…they use potted plants. According to ABC News, the villages of Derby Line, Vermont, and Stanstead, Quebec, are still essentially one town. The line physically snakes through side streets, in and out of houses, through the public library and straight down the middle of a main road that residents affectionately call “Canusa Street.” A line of potted plants downtown actually represent the international boundary between the two nations.
