Yes yes yes! Is there anyone who doesn’t think this is a great idea? Canada needs it’s own Hawaii. Well according to Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird, Canadians are dreaming if they think they’ll have a province in the Caribbean any time soon. Boo!
However, Turks and Caicos Premier Rufus Ewing is open to the idea even if he wasn’t in the past. He met Stephen Harper in Ottawa, where he says they spoke about exploring a more formal relationship.
Ewing described the meeting as a “courtship,” but said they didn’t discuss the possibility of Turks and Caicos becoming Canada’s 11th province. The idea, however, is not out of the question, Ewing suggested during a news conference following the meeting.
“It is not of my mandate to close the door,” he said.
“It is my mandate to see Turks and Caicos have sustainable economic growth and development and development of our people … and we look to Canada, who has shown by example of being a very strong democracy.”
Can we just make this happen already?
