It’s time for Canada to merge with the United States.
That’s the argument from pundit, author, HuffPost blogger and American-born dual citizen Diane Francis in her new book “Merger of the Century,” and it’s already starting plenty of conversation about the future of a North American union.
Francis’ argument centres around what she sees as the threat posed by state-run economies such as China and Russia to Western prosperity. In her view, these nations are using a variety of nefarious means to buy up Western resources and corporations while barring such purchases in their own nations.
These “giant holding company” nations are “wolves at the door,” Francis told CBC.
In an excerpt from the book published by the National Post, Francis argues that the antidote to this Eastern encroachment is for Canada and the U.S. to become one giant nation.
She lists a number of potential benefits, among them:
