Canadians invite California, Oregon and Washington to join Canada

Canadians are inviting people in the United States Pacific coastal states of California, Oregon and Washington, where United States President-elect Donald Trump lost heavily to his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, to secede from the US and join Canada.

“Dear California, Oregon, Washington – I’m sure we can work something out if you want to join Canada,” Chad Harris, a reporter from Kamloops, British Columbia, tweeted.

“California, Oregon, Washington, I, for one, will accept you with open arms into the liberal bosom of Canada,” Alex Middleton of Calgary, Alberta agreed.

“Now is the time for Canada to prepare to add 3 provinces, Washington, Oregon and California,” fellow British Columbian Craig Heber from Tofino shared the sentiment. “Guaranteed means to grow economy would be adding the sixth largest economy in the world to ours.”
Some extended the invitation to Nevada, also won by the Democratic candidate.

“To the west coast of the United States, if you want to you can all become Canadian Provinces, since you voted closer to the experiences we have as Canadian,” Calgarian Andrew Mercier said in a Facebook post. “Therefore WA, OR, NV, and CA you are now provinces, also bring all the goodness that you have to us!!!”

Others want Hawaii, another so-called “Blue State” and outgoing President Barack Obama’s birthplace, to become a Canadian province.

“Dear USA west coast – Washington, Oregon, California and Hawaii – come and join Canada, we’d welcome you!,” Torry Courte, a musician and songwriter from Vancouver, British Columbia, tweeted.

“California, Oregon, Washington, Hawaii,” Rick Spence from Toronto, Ontario, tweeted. “Don’t bother to count the votes. Join Canada. Just try us out for four years.”

How do the disgruntled voters in the West Coast states feel about joining?

Douglas Cole of Beaverton, Oregon, summed up the feelings of many shocked West Coasters in a humorous open letter.

Dear Canada,

We, the fine people of Washington, Oregon, and California, wish to secede. We offer our people, our land, and our resources to you, Oh Canada. We promise not to fight this, but instead, to fight FOR this. Although, you being…you know…Canadians, we’re confident in a polite transition as we become your fourth territory, Washorefornia.

Or Calorington.
We’re fine with either.
Just please take us.
Pretty please?

With Love and Great Respect,
The Western Former US States

“These days I love daydreaming about Washington, Oregon, and California all ceding from the US and joining Canada,” Scott Dixon of Mercer Island, Washington, posted on Facebook. “Besides that this would form a country that had one of the largest economies in the world (California is #6, Canada is #8 by GDP), it certainly seems like the American West coast has more in common with British Columbia then it does Idaho, Utah, and Arizona (In my daydream Nevada also cedes but becomes it’s own mad-max themed nation-state).”
“Hey Canada, I have a proposal for you,” Dave Lewis, of San Francisco, California posted on Facebook. “I say we take Washington, Oregon, California and Hawaii, combine them with Canada and make one amazing country. Lots of new coastline. Who’s in?”

“Dear Mr Trump, I’ve figured it out,” Patrick Heffernan of San Diego, California posted. “End the deficit by selling Washington, Oregon, and California to Canada. We don’t mind.”

A merger with the Pacific states would more than double Canada’s population from 35 million to 83 million, while tripling the GDP from US$ 1.5 trillion to US$ 4.5 trillion.

    A word of encouragement to freaked out Democrats. It’s very likely there’ll be at least a recession within the next four years
    And the Dems will comeback yuggee. Fed debt 20 trillion, private and corporate 60 trillion, state and municipal debt huge,unfounded liabilities 100 trillion, interest rates at 5,000 year lows and rising, unrest around the world. Although the president has little real control over the economy, Trump will become the next Herbert Hoover and Dems will take over for a long time. This might be when a break up in the USA is more likely.

        I clearly recall that Texas themselves spoke of secession, but you didn’t seem too awful concerned then… why the crocodile tears now? The GOP was ready if Hillary had won, and the GOP/tea party thought that was just great. So now that the US stands to lose half of their economy, now you think session is wrong… are you always this hypocritical or is today special in some mysterious way? No one needs your pity or your approval. You get one vote, just like everybody else does. And only if you live in those named states. I do.. I live in California, and I agree, it would be nice… universal healthcare without fighting for it sounds good just for a start. And their national leader isn’t a complete mental nut-job, too, which is also inviting.

          I’ve been nervous to live in America lately, and with recent events, so has the majority of high school students around me. We’re scared, and many of us just like me can’t vote yet and feel powerless. Everyone I’ve brought up this topic with has been so excited. My parents and family, my friends, and my not-so-friends all get a little shine in their eyes when I bring this up. We want to be part of Canada and want to be involved in making it happen. Not everyone in CA, OR, NV and WA are worthless, brainless, drug addicts that are sucking up all the welfare. It’s not fair to the rest (much larger portion) of us when people assume such. Every city, state, and country has it’s issues. Obviously what we need is change. A good change. So please please please take us Canada! We need help! SOS from the educated portion of the USA. I personally would be so happy to join you Canada. You wouldn’t regret me I swear! Wouldn’t hurt to have an aspiring Veterinarian. 🙂

        We use a first past the post system, based on specific demographics in condenced populations electing different ridings, so it could definitely throw off our system of checks and balances.

    The upside for the Unified States, we would lose States with very high debt, California especially, we would lose a good share of our Criminal and Welfare Recipient Immigrants, we would lose California that is a big drain on our energy because they have Regulated most of theirs out of business. The downside, my Cousins that live in those States would have to move back to their birth States. We would lose the Majority of Progressive Liberals and turn our Country primarily Conservitive. It would be like a great Christmas Present.

      California has the sixth largest economy in the world. We will do just fine. The bible belt states would have to stop relying on our support. You are the welfare states – you take more than you give and we are tired of supporting stupid people. We have it all – access to ocean trade, clean rivers, mountains, deserts, clean air, drinkable water, educated people…

      That’s right, stupid state, keep your conservative policies, go ahead and wallow in your own filth and pray. And don’t try immigrating to California – we don’t want you.

        Wow……that is, by far, the most hateful, bigoted comment I have ever heard. Not one bit surprised you are a progressive Liberal. You scream for equality and tolerance but actually have none at all.

        • G says:

          The point is that the divide was created (again) by a flawed system the puts in office the candidate that lost the popular vote. Currently, highly populated states do not receive equal representation in the electoral college, so less populated states decide the election as each voter receives more sway in contrast to the popular vote (which is conveniently in opposition to the Constitution). Currently in the US, there is a Conservative movement against science, women’s rights and articles in the Constitution. Those who paid attention in Civics class know how wrong this is and are tired of the lies and “alternate facts” (can’t believe Conway was dumb enough to coin this phrase). I would like to suggest that Hawaii be added to the succession movement as the voters there share the beliefs of Pacifica. The Pacific coast will thrive, as will the Eastern Seabord, if they follow the secession movement. The poor, less populous states who supported Trump in the mid-and-southern-states will be nearly landlocked, with a great reduction of federal funds (as more economically solvent states are no longer supporting them). But that is what they voted for so it meets their wishes. They got their candidate and all the flaws that he brings to office. BTW, this is not hateful in any way. It is entirely factual. There will never be agreement between the liberal states and the conservative states on so many human rights issues. The issues on each side are, honestly, non-negotiable. So, let’s just agree to disagree, shake hands and move on. Good luck to all!

            The point of the EC is so California, Florida, etc. can’t decide the entire election. If that were the case, then candidates would only go to the states with the highest populations rather than the smaller states.

          I’m sorry it upset you then, cupcake. I hear Breitbart’s offering free counseling to those traumatized by such naked liberal aggression. Also a nice pair of leather boots and a fancy armband, just in case the latest trauma victim doesn’t have their own set already.

          But I have to ask, did it never occur to you that after putting up with little more than insults, ridicule, and general disdain from the right-wingers for several decades, maybe we’ve just decided to stop giving you free passes? Year in and year out, being called soft, spineless, cowardly, un-American, lazy, useless, traitors, etc.

          So we’re done tolerating the intolerable, but we welcome you to equality- we had our turn, now it’s yours. You and everyone else trying to undo all the progress that’s been made over the past fifty years are going to get exactly what you’ve been giving us all along. Here’s hoping you fare better than the GOP politicians literally running from their liberal (or even MODERATE) constituents rather than face them.

    Except for any federal land managed by the BLM and National Parks, That should stay with the U.S., being the property of all Americans. The borders would have to route around our land, so it would not be as clean as what was drawn out and they would probably get significantly less than what they are expecting. The U.S. would not have to worry about all that nuclear waste from San Onofre’s shuttered plant, it could stay with California forever.

      Property of all Americans? What oil company do you work for? The National Park Service is under a gag order issued by Trump. Republicans want to sell off public lands (bill introduced by Congressman Jason Chaffetz, R-UT) and drill for oil in the National Parks. (Rep. Rep. Paul Gosar R-AZ). As for nuclear waste staying in CA… American politicians are a cheap buy… a few hundred thousand dollars to a politician and the nuclear waste will be on it’s way to AZ or some other state forever.

        Haha gag order??? You know that was blown out of context right lol. Everything is on pause cause of department heads being replaced this happens with every new president. The reason why it is still on hold is because the Democrats didn’t show up to vote for the okay. So it is the Democrats that are holding up the EPA but nice try lol.

        Canadian taxes aren’t very high at all. Depending on which province you live it varies of course. You have to take into account that you don’t need to actually pay for health insurance anymore because all Canadians are entitled to free health care. To an extent. So if you take that money that you were initially paying for your Healthcare and add it to the increased taxes you’ll receive, it won’t be much of a change. Canada also has higher minimum wages then the US federal level. Enjoy

    Might as well join Canada. In November’s election-scrum, not one single vote in Oregon, for President, mattered one way or another. It’s as if we don’t exist in the USA. Not one ballot from Oregon offset the red state electoral total that went to the Con Man. Also, our primaries are so late in the year that the Dem and Rep candidates are already decided — in fact, every election cycle, mullet heads in Iowa and New Hampshire set the agenda (and, boy, do they have agendas) for the rest of the country — and politicians in Oregon are too fearful to move our primary voting up to offer a little West Coast perspective in the campaigning. California has a big complaint, too. One person, one vote? Not hardly. No thanks to the Electoral College, one voter in Wyoming, for one example, carries the same weight as 20 voters in California.

  31. Morgan says:

    As a Canadian there are a few problems I see with this idea.

    If the west coast of the U.S. joined us it would more than double our population. In effect the people living in the new provinces would have the capability of determining a large percentage of our government.

    A possible solution this particular issue would be to let each state join slowly over time. One state joins, wait five years, second state joins (if they still want to).

    But a bigger issue is that when your family is in turmoil you don’t abandon them, you try and help them through it. For better or worse the west coast of the United States are still part of the American family, I know times have been tough, but abandoning your family should be last resort (or almost a last resort, as civil war would be worse).

    I would hope that you would try and save the other U.S. states before jumping ship. Educate people in other states, raise awareness of issues. But if you join a new family, please make sure it isn’t premature.
