CHAT: Uusi suomi

I was looking for the Uusisuom web page, but Google hasn't indexed
it yet (what is the URL, anyhow?).  The spelling corrector offered
me "Uusi suomi" as an alternative, which I knew was wrong, but
clicked on anyway out of curiosity.

Turns out there is/was an Uusi suomi, or New Finland, in the
SE corner of Saskatchewan, Canada.  It was settled in the 1880s,
and though mostly English speaking now, still has marks of
Finnish cultural influences.
