    Alaska become a United States state in 1959, along with Hawaii. Though it is geographically connected to Canada it has no connection whatsoever to the Canadian government.

    By the way, there are 50 (not 52) United States.

    hmm, i’ve looked at the globe and let’s see. Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana, Idaho and Washington states are connected to Canada by land, Ohio and Pennsylvania share a water border (in Lake Erie) with Canada, and you can get to Canada by boat from Wisconsin, Indiana and Illinois.

    and there are other entire countries that are connected to Canada by the polar ice cap.

    I live in Alaska. Sorry to burst your bubble – but Alaska is part of the USA.

    You are never going to convince people Alaska is part of Canada no matter how hard you try. Only a total idiot would believe Alaska is a part of Canada.
