Anyone who's every been to Sandpoint or Priest Lake in the summer (or even NorthTown Mall in Spokane) can see that folks from the places listed below have more in common with each other than they do with folks back east. The regional media already assumes this, KSPS PBS Spokane is even listed as a Spokane/Calgary/Edmonton station and Gonzaga University even already has classes in all the major centres in Cascadia.

I'm confident if Cascadia were ever to be formed it would be the most prosperous place on earth. The sum of the different parts are greater than the different regions alone... The unrealized synergies economically, socially or even academically are huge.

I have no problem with US annexing Canada. I mean, Canada is already a lackey of the US anyway. It is not like being taken over will take away more dignity.

Canada will have a much larger market while US will have access to massive resources. And of course loser companies such as Air Canada, Rogers etc will cease to exist instantly. I will be able to order stuff for a much better price online and many people will be able to live in warmer areas with better job markets. Those who are against everything and love nothing but trees and the "environment" can all move to British Columbia.

Maybe not as one province. I don't want to be in the same province as Quebec and Atlantic Canada, where most people don't work but enjoy collecting "benefits" more than anything else. They can form one state and manage their own finances.

So BC, Alberta, Manitoba+Sask+Northern Ontario, S. Ontario, Quebec+Atlantic Canada (I don't care about the language difference, they are the same parasites for me), 5 new states. I am totally cool with that.

Don't be too hard on the boticelli boy. He fell for a troll jumping on here and causing a stir with his ninth post since registering. I fell for it also in another thread he's contibuted "froth" to, over our border agents having turned him back over a criminal record or somesuch.

We'll be hearing much more from "POOR OLD MAN" I'm sure.

Yeah; this fellow sounds very much like someone else we've seen on here lately but whose gone AWOL the last few days.

We've now had villification towards the head capo "Lizzie" and the most lowly of minions; our border guards.

Someone's got to come on here soon to start bashing our pols or Justin Beiber at which point I'm going to find myself terribly conflicted! I'll take a page from another's routine and invent another personna so I can take an active part in those, I guess.
