You can be sitting on a Canadian beach, sipping a beverage in a coconut, on a hot, sunny day – in the winter – if Canada adopts Turks and Caicos.
The federal NDP may debate this is at its upcoming convention, but this a conversation that started all of the way back in 1917 when former prime minister Robert Borden asked Great Britain to give us the little piece of paradise.
Turks and Caicos is a British Overseas Territory comprised of 40 low-lying coral islands in the Atlantic, southeast of the Bahamas … basically located in heaven.
Back in 2014, the Caribbean island’s Premier, Rufus Ewing, was open to this, but Canada’s former foreign affairs minister John Baird sunblocked the idea of a tropical Canadian province.
Oh, by the by, right now in Turks and Caicos it’s sunny and 26 degrees Celsius.
