Recently Peter Goldring, MP for Edmonton, revived the idea of bringing the Caribbean islands of Turks and Caicos into the Canadian fold. This is not the first time the idea has been shopped around, and it’s the kind of story, like a Maritime Union or an Albertan secession, that captures hearts and minds in the hopes that something will shake up the mundanity of Canadian geography. “What if?” They may say, but I say the time for what ifs is over. This is the perfect time to bring these far-flung islands under our wing and we have a perfect way to do it; by merging them with their virtually identical twin island of PEI.
