Should Canada join the USA?
This poll operates like a wiki: feel free to update its summary and, if applicable, add a new, better option to the poll itself.
This poll is directly inspired by Adrian Tawfik's blog entry Why Canada Should Consider Joining the United States. This is a Community Manifesto poll, and as will all community polls, you can insert relevant statements for other members to vote on. There is also a referendum-like open poll based on the same blog entry.
