Two ranchers just outside of Regina, Saskatchewan have found a creative way to protest the U.S. border closure to Canadian live cattle.
Miles Anderson and Jay Fitzpatrick both have given up haircuts in their attempt to put pressure on the American government to reopen the border to Canadian beef. Neither man has had a haircut in over a year and are wondering how much longer it will be until they can once again ship their cattle and snip their locks.
Although Anderson says that he will continue his protest for as long as it takes, he does express some concern with the rapid approach of wood tick season. Fitzpatrick, on the other hand, is quickly growing tired of maintaining his 'do, despite having received many comments about both his lengthly locks and his protest.
There is no word on whether any of those remarks were to the effect of "get a haircut and get a real job".**Not that we at Canadian Expatriates believe that ranching is not a real job!
