Perhaps Canadians could make an exception for people from the US?

The night of hard drinking and celebration will come to an end and we all knows what happens the morning after.. In this case January 21, 2017.
Not my intention to compare quality of education systems but rather to show that if this merger were adopted Canada would be merging with states that show educational excellence, not dragging them down. So yes I agree

What will happen with the illegal aliens in West coast USA? Canada shouldn't be forced to compromise standards to US levels, but at the same time, no one should be left behind.

How about finally working towards meaningful immigration reform and bringing people out of the shadows? The states being adopted are pro reform and the Canadian government seems pragmatic enough to come to a solution. Despite not having to deal with anything of this magnitude before.

That would be something! English fluency should be mandatory for illegal US immigrants who want citizenship in Canada. Anyone who has lived, worked, and raised a family in the US has no excuse for not being fluent in English.

Canada would certainly benefit from access to affordable agriculture products from warmer climates - like wine.

Not the first time and likely won't be the last. If I recall well, the WTO has sided with Canada in the past and found Brazil to be in violation.

We have access now. Free trade doesn't mean countries have to join.

Canada also produces some rather good wines itself, truth be told.

Have you ever been to the US? There's lots of places in every major city and areas in many states where you can get by just fine in your language of choice, and never have to speak English beyond cursory phrases that we'd use to get by in "resort Spanish".

I know of people that actually did become Canadian citizens (passed the test, I do not know how) and do not speak English.....
