If Anchorage was a capital, it would not have made the list anyway. It is roughly the same distance from the Canadian border as Washington, DC is.

The four jurisdictions in North America's far north all are. Nunavut's the largest, followed by Alaska and NWT. Only Yukon's a moderate size - a little larger than California (with 0.1% the population).

Seattle is not the capital of anything. Olympia is the capital of Washington (I should know, I was born there) and Washington, DC is the capital of the United States

First of all, I only got Columbus with one second left - I was surprised it made the list. In checking the conditions (needs to touch a Canadian point on land), it's actually even closer than what's listed. From the dot for Columbus on Google Earth, I've got 123 miles to the southern tip of Pelee Island.
