A Canadian Paradise in the Sun?

It's hard to believe that the Canadians have rejected this no-brainer idea twice before. Do they really enjoy freezing their asses that much?

Resurrection of idea for Canadian, Caribbean union

It's a dream that just won't die - a Canadian paradise in the sun with sugar-sand beaches...

After failed attempts in the 1970s and 1980s to breathe life into the idea of a union between Canada and the Turks and Caicos Islands in the Caribbean, the proposal is back, and this time it's supported by determined politicians and business people in both countries.

"In the long term, what is so absolutely vital for Canada is to expand our sphere of influence," says Conservative MP Peter Goldring, a driving force behind the Turks and Caicos movement. "I'd like it to be the 11th province"

The archipelago of 30 islands lies east of Cuba, south of the Bahamas and north of Haiti. It's about 3,500 kilometres south of Canada."
