Petition calls for U.S. to sell Montana to Canada

It already borders three Canadian provinces and has a diverse terrain of Rocky Mountains and Great Plains that mirror those in Alberta and Saskatchewan.

So, should the U.S. sell Montana to Canada as one online petition is proposing?

After the U.S. national debt soared to more than $22 trillion earlier this month, a man named Ian Hammond launched a petition on Change.org last week to sell Montana to Canada for $1 trillion to reduce the national debt.

“We have too much debt and Montana is useless,” the proposal reads. “Just tell them it has beavers or something.”

Although the petition appeared to be created in jest, it has already earned more than 12,000 signatures as of Thursday morning.

“[I’m] just surprised that so many people have ‘backed’ my ‘cause,’” Hammond wrote in the petition’s comments. “All in all this is pretty epic.”

Montanans’ reactions to the petition have been mixed.

“Nobody could stand looking at such an ugly map for such a tiny dent in the national debt,” one man told ABC Fox Montana.

“God, I really hope it’s a joke,” another man said.

However, some Montana residents have voiced their support for the idea.

“I’m Montanan and hoping to join Canada without the moving costs. Let’s do this. Please adopt us,” one commenter wrote on the petition.

“I’d love this to happen. Montanans would then have decent health care, better roads, and more ice arenas,” one woman wrote.

Kristen Inbody, a columnist for the Great Falls Tribune in Montana, told CTV Regina she has spoken to a number of residents who listed legal marijuana, healthcare, better tea, and Tim Hortons as potential draws in Canada.

As for how Canadians feel about the possible acquisition…

One Saskatchewan resident said $1 trillion sounds like a lot of money, but acknowledged it would be a lot of land.

“It’d sure be a beautiful state to own I guess,” another man said.

Montana lawmakers have even weighed in on the debate during a state house committee meeting earlier this week. The 20-member committee voted 15-5 against being sold to Canada.

“It was not a unanimous vote though,” Inbody said. “That’s the crazy part.”

The house committee did, however, shoot down a satirical proposal to formalize their opposition to the petition in the form of a bill

I bet North and South Dakota would love to be apart of the talks as well very close ties between the 3 states and the prairies

No acquisition without reading the fine print. The Devil's always in the fine print.

Move every State upwards to claim the best land, thanks to the Provinces wanting to rejoin the US. The people north of that are Canadians and are anti-everybody so they should be sanctioned to death, literally.

If we have equalization payments West to East why not South to North as well that expands on this ?

Not like ours. Besides which Canada is getting crowded so we might as well send the riff Raff to Montana. No plane fare involved in moving them.

The US has a much higher population density than Canada does.

'Shoot first' is not a law, it's a $75 ticket, $150 if it is before 7AM or after 11PM. Not being a good aim is pretty much a death sentence anytime.

Not in Montana. It is a perfect place for them to protest Canadian oil.

Even better. Use them for slow moving targets for kids to practice on.

MT has plenty of oil.

Injun owned oil companies would hire thugs to sick dogs on them like they did to their cousins at Standing Rock.

I'm hoping the bands along the TM route start doing the same. It would go faster if we cut off their welfare.
