'Just tell them it has beavers': Montana might sell itself to Canada
It was brought up a joke. But some politicians are seriously in favour
This is what North America would look like if Canada were to actually accept Montana's 'offer' in exchange for one trillion dollars.https://www.change.org/p/christian-moms-against-private-education-sell-montana-to-canada-for-1-trillion-to-eliminate-the-national-debt
EDMONTON — Montana’s politicians have failed to rule out the possibility of selling the state to Canada for $1 trillion.
The purported benefits would include having Justin Trudeau as leader.
“My pages, at special request, wanted to let everyone know that they’re strongly in support of having Justin Trudeau as president of the country,” Jessica Karjala told her fellow legislators at the Montana House of Representatives on Wednesday.
An online petition posted last week to Change.org is calling for the sale of the state to Canada. “We have too much debt and Montana is useless. Just tell them it has beavers or something,” the petition says.
As of Thursday, nearly 13,000 people — it’s unknown how many of them were actually Montanans — had signed the petition.
