Turks and Caicos should join Canada

Turks and Caicos should not join Canada

History

Canada and Turks and Caicos share history as part of the British Empire.  It was first suggested that Turks and Caicos should join Canada in 1917 by then Prime Minister Robert Borden.3

History

Although Canada and Turks and Caicos were both a part of the British Empire, they have very different histories.

Economics

Canadians already frequent Turks and Caicos as a holiday location.  Their addition to Canada would make travel there even easier, which would be a benefit for everyone.

Economics

Integration of the islands into Canada would be very expensive.  Turks and Caicos uses the US Dollar as currency, and converting the economy may be expensive.

Culture

Canada is already a very multi-cultural society, and there should be no concerns about integrating and valuing another cultural group into the country.

Culture

People from Turks and Caicos are very calm and laid back, and see Canadians as being constantly in a hurry and overly strict.3

   

Other Factors for Discussion

 Arguments for middle-ground, additional or related solutions.
