What would happen if the US and Canada merged together into one big country?
If you live in Michigan, particularly the Eastern Upper Peninsula and the Southeast Lower Peninsula, chances are high that you’ve crossed the border into Canada. We certainly know that our Canadian neighbors are heading over here in hefty numbers. A check of license plates at Metro Detroit shopping centers makes a strong case.
Our next guest makes a case for taking these two large countries and merging them into one. She believes the two would become much stronger for joining together.
She is currently Editor at Large at the National Post, a blogger for the Huffington Post, and a Distinguished Professor at Ryerson University’s Ted Rogers School of Management in Toronto. Her nine earlier books focused on politics, immigration, economics and finance and white collar crime.
Her newest book is “Merger of the Century: Why Canada and America Should Become One Country.”
Author Diane Francis joined us today.
