Let’s face it, Turks and Caicos would make a terrible 11th province.
In case you haven’t heard, the NDP released a list of resolutions ahead of its upcoming national convention in Edmonton, Alta., this weekend. Among them was a plan to adopt the Caribbean island of Turks and Caicos as a new Canadian province so that we could develop the land to become an “affordable tourism industry.”
It’s not a new idea, it was originally thought up by Prime Minister Robert Borden in 1917 when he asked Great Britain if we could have the tropical destination (which is still considered a British overseas territory today).
But seriously, who would want this?
The water is totally gross:
Yuck. Yuck. Yuck.
Have you even seen what they eat down there?
The beaches really aren’t great…:
There’s literally nothing you can do there:
Look at how disgusting this is!
Honestly, winter is so much better:
As you can see, adopting Turks and Caicos as Canada’s 11th province is pretty much the worst idea ever. Seriously, keep your white, sandy beaches away from us, T&C. (Now, if we were forced to adopt this beautiful nightmare, we’d somehow find a way to embrace it–because we are nice Canadians, after all.)
