Turks and Caicos talking for the second time apparently about joining Canada. Canada get in here, what’s this all aboot?
Thanks to the recent visit of Turks and Caicos Premier Rufus Ewing, Canadians are once again fantasizing about the idea of inviting this tropical paradise into the federation fold as a new Canadian province or territory. This despite Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird throwing cold Atlantic water on the idea by saying, “we’re not in the business of annexing islands in the Caribbean.”
What? Okay, well cool for you Canada, you could complete step one of becoming an empire, and why not? You’re the only damn country in the world right now whose economy is actually doing well, you’re not on the verge of war with some other country, or in the crossfire of countries or peoples on the verge or at war with each other. You’re doing pretty good from what I can tell. Have yourself a Caribbean island.
If you’re in Sochi this week and you spot a bright red beer Canadian maple leaf adorned beer fridge promising you free beer, you’re only getting said free beer if you’ve got a Canadian passport or if you make nice with a Canadian who will scan their passport for you. Canada, you win all the gold medals.
If you’re a Kids in the Hall fan and you’re going to be in Toronto on March 11, probably the most awesome thing you’ll do all month will be to drop by the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival, where all five members of Kids in the Hall will be doing a live table read of their 1996 film ‘Brain Candy’. Tickets are $39 bucks and you can get em here.
