http://thinkpol.ca/2016/11/12/canadians-invite-california-oregon-and-washington-to-join-canada/ While not to be taken seriously at this time, this brings up some interesting points. Trump could eliminate the deficit by selling off those states and it would be highly beneficial to Canada. Hell, the West Coast has more in common with BC than it's neighoring states to the East. On a more real note, it is possible that to some degree the West Coast might de-facto secede from the US if Trumps' policies take a hard turn to the right. For example Chicago and NYC have already declared they'll be "sanctuary cities" for immigrants that Trump might want to deport - even if they lose Federal funds in the process. If Abortion or Planned Parenthood go down, I could see the West Coast be "sanctuary states", using funds from marijuana sales (and perhaps increased taxes) to implement policies that go counter the the Feds (and more in line with Canada btw). Thoughts?
