More information about Final Jeopardy:

Canada’s Four Corners sits near 60°N 102°W and marks the boundary between Manitoba, Saskatchewan, the Northwest Territories, and Nunavut; the quadripoint has existed since the establishment of Nunavut in 1999. The boundary has been marked by an obelisk since 1962. Unlike the US Four Corners, Canada’s Four Corners is much more inaccessible; the border sits in a taiga forest hundreds of miles from any road or rail link.

  • I did not notice any April Fool’s jokes within today’s game. I’d say that’s a good thing, as there are many people (myself included) who are not in the mood for that this year.

  1. Oh no I can see Alex being perturbed if the Americans don’t know it😬😬

    • I’m sure Alex said a few words to Hemant after the show, or at least he should have!

  2. MY FJ answer was the same as the 2 ladies. How ironic that while Hemant won thru fortuitous wagering, his guess was about as far across Canada as could be. lol

  3. There’s a lovely shopping mall in Regina Saskatchewan

  4. Congrats to the 8thy champ in as many days.

  5. Tough FJ as we got a triple stumper.

  6. Not that tough, Ismael. “Prairie provinces” was the giveaway. That could only have been Saskatchewan and Manitoba. I’m surprised it was a TS.

    I’ve travelled in many parts of Canada piecemeal over the years but I have to admit I never gave a thought to a four corners spot. Do all Canadians know the answer?

    • I would guess no, just as all Americans certainly don’t know what 4 states converge at the U.S.’s own Four Corners being one of them. Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah…of course! (Once again, thanks Googlie-poo.)

    • I am a Canadian and got the answer correct knowing that it could only be Alberta and Saskatchewan or Saskatchewan and Manitoba as there are only 3 prairie provinces. Probably most Canadians would get it but not all would know where Nunavut meets the prairie provinces. I could see some guessing Saskatchewan and Alberta.

      • I am Canadian also and I had the same line of thinking, Jim Fryza. Perhaps Americans would have heard of Alberta because of Banff and Saskatchewan because of its long name. I think Manitoba is perhaps less famous.

    Yep, good old Google to the rescue. I’ve driven through Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah, but never Colorado. Both the US and Canada are W-I-D-E. In 1971 I drove from Seattle to NY in 3-1/2 days to get my car onto a boat to Norway. The last leg was 1200 miles including thick fog across Pennsylvania.

    Hemant managed to name one Canadian province. Another geography question not involving the US and another dismal three-way failure!

  10. Jere Gauss | April 3, 2020 at 9:49 pm |

    Another skunk for me, the fifth of 2020. I almost got suckered in by Alberta, which is a least as “prairie” as Colorado or Montana. But halfway through the response period, I shifted to Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Could’ve been Manitoba and Ontario, too. But I managed to settle my mind on the correct response with time to spare.
