It was an idea proposed by an NDP MP more than 40 years ago and could be revisited. 

The adoption of the islands of Turks and Caicos as Canada’s 11th province.

While the idea was more recently proposed in 2013 by former Conservative MP Peter Goldring, the idea goes back to 1974 when New Democrat MP Max Saltzman introduced a private member’s bill to annex the islands. The proposal can be traced back even further to 1917 when former prime minister Robert Borden asked Great Britain to let Canada have the tropical paradise.

And while Turks and Caicos Premier Rufus Ewing was open to the prospect of his country joining Canada in 2014, former foreign affairs minister John Baird shot down the idea of a tropical Canadian province.

Turks and Caicos is a British Overseas Territory consisting of 40 low-lying coral islands in the Atlantic Ocean, southeast of the Bahamas.

The idea was shot down by former foreign minister. We would like this idea to be revisited and make it happen.
