Upper Peninsula Was Featured on a Map Graphic… But Labeled as Part of Canada

Written by Nate

A Fox 5 news graphic shown a map of the Upper Peninsula as a feature on the broadcast. 

However, there was one problem: it was being named as part of Canada. 

I know where we’re close to our neighboring country, but I think many of us didn’t know that were part of the Ontario province (shrugs shoulders). 

This is part of a few misrepresentations of the U.P. from just this summer alone. Mountain Dew made up their mistake after they labeled the U.P. as part of Wisconsin. 

They went ahead and issued a new bottle specifically for the Upper Peninsula and it turned out pretty well for us.
