CTV Ottawa reported today that a delegation of officials from the Turks and Caicos Islands were meeting with Canada’s Prime Minister in Ottawa. The group included the Island’s Premier and Minister of Tourism Rufus Ewing.
The subject of Canada annexing the Turks and Caicos is not new. It surfaced back in the 1970’s when Pierre Elliott Trudeau was Prime Minister and has continued to surface since that time.
The question being asked in the CTV report is: “Will the Turks and Caicos become Canada’s 11th province?” Some Canadians and others have taken to providing their opinions on local blogs – with some in favor and others against the idea.
