    Help? 13th Province

    I am trying to find a webpage that advocates Canada buy an island in the Caribbean. I have seen it before, and I think the link was provided by somebody here.

    Does anybody know what I am talking about and have a link?

    Thanks for your help.

    A Canadian Alliance MP wants Canada to investigate the
    possibility of annexing the idyllic Turks and Caicos

    Peter Goldring, MP for Edmonton Centre-East, has
    drafted a motion asking the federal government to
    study the practicality of "a union" that would see the
    islands adopted as "Canada's 11th province." He plans
    to introduce it when the House of Commons reconvenes
    this fall.

    Canada has twice rejected the idea of annexing the
    archipelago in the past 30 years. But Mr. Goldring
    says it might make sense to reconsider in "this new
    day and age of international terrorism."

    "Maybe it would be good from a secure aspect of having
    a little piece of Canada in the south that Canadians
    could travel to with a greater sense of security than
    some of the other islands that are commonly visited,"
    he said from Edmonton.

    Mr. Goldring's interest in Turks and Caicos was
    sparked in part by several grassroots groups that
    recently launched campaigns urging Canada to annex a
    tropical paradise of its own for snowbirds. He also
    has a niece living on one of the islands and is
    planning a family vacation there this winter.

    The Turks and Caicos Islands are a British territory
    about 900 kilometres southeast of Florida. The islands
    are famous for pristine sandy beaches, scuba diving
    and their status as an offshore tax haven.

    Turks and Caicos Canadian?
    I’m not crazy, I just need to get off this island. The doctors don’t believe I invented the chocolate éclair. But I did. I’m going to burn them all and drink soup from their skulls! Happy soup! Untie me and I’ll kill you last!

    As much as Canada needs a little tropical sunshine and beaches I don't think this is such a good idea.

    A lot of taxpayer money would be basically going towards setting up a settlement for our wealthy {think Whistler on the beach}, while disrupting life on the islands for those who live there now. The islanders would be priced and bought off their land eventually.
