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?

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.)
