Ok. Guess that's it for me in this thread then.

So for the average joe, no benifit but higher tax burden for those equalization payments. Good benifit if you are rich or looking for a warm climate to retire. Am I missing a benifit for Canada?

If Canada annexes the Turks and Caicos islands then Britain should annex the Republic of Ireland.

There are many uninhabited islands in the Caribbean and a few countries that don't have much money. Instead of taking over a current country, which will never happen, we should pay a country for an uninhabited island and make it a territory of Canada. It wouldn't have to be too big, enough for a few hotels and beach areas.

And annexing the Turks and Caicos will not be as straightforward as some Canadians believe. That's because Britain is responsible for the islands' defence.

That means that, should Canada invade those islands, Britain will have a duty to kick you off the islands just like it did with the Argentines in the Falklands - another British Overseas Territory - in 1982.

And I haven't heard a thing about TCI wanting us. Let's forget about them and buy an empty island.

The whole island has to agree, or we will have political problems, it will never happen. Forget them. Nova Scotia doesn't even believe in equal rep by pop.

Buy an empty island so we own it with fewer hassles. This won't be easy either.

well, for one, we'll get to assume their debt!

they could sink one of our submarines there (on purpose, or, well, you know, just because) and have an underwater dive park for the tourists.

:?P

Is this simply because you want a vacation spot?

Personally, I would like to see Canada have their spot in the sun. No need to go to Florida to vacation, or California.. Canada would have it's own spot, under Canadian rule of law.

Personally, Belize fit's my bill for a vacation spot. English speaking, Latin women, Commonwealth Law and stable Government, Belize dollar pegged at 50% of the USD.

Used to be able to buy Belize citizenship for $50,000 USD but that ship has sailed. Guess wife #4 will work. LOL However was looking for an Australian for #4.. had 1 Mexican and 2 US Citizens.. seems every time a visit a country a bring back more than a souvenir.

Good luck with that! How did it work out the first time?

No, we already own Arizona and Florida.

And Bermuda. Bermuda is begging us to take them over from the British.
