Veteran National Post columnist Diane Francis has written 10 books. Merger of the Century: Why Canada and America Should Become One Country is easily her most ambitious.
Perhaps a little too ambitious, many readers might conclude.
It is also, in a way, her most personal. As an American-born dual citizen, Ms. Francis writes passionately about the many historical and cultural ties that bind her ancestral and adopted countries. Merger of the Century makes the case for erasing the formal distinction between the two entirely. After all, were both melting-pot societies, she says. So why not turn the whole continent north of the Rio Grande into the worlds biggest pot?
Postmedia NewsDiane Francis: If Canada is going to be the target of a creeping takeover from a big player, we may as well manage the process. But Merger of the Century is not just a stew of touchy-feely geopolitical metaphors: Ms. Francis is a business writer, and her book is full of numbers.

Even if it could be done I see a major issue with no solution, what do you do with Quebec?
Democrats would love it, GOP would not pick up many votes
The world’s largest theme park - French World.
I don’t want to have to deal with the Quebecois any more than the Canucks do.
As a state, Quebec would be responsible for its own affairs.
Same thing you with the US Senate.
Also, to ensure continuity with our hallowed universal-health-care ideals, we Canadians would be provided with fraud-proof health cards, valid anywhere in the 50 states, 10 provinces or three territories. Americans would not be entitled to this benefit.
I mean, that's just adorable in so many ways. I have strong doubts as to whether this woman can be trusted with scissors.
And add selling back Detroit to the French.
NFL to 3 downs, I like that
The US should give Quebec New England and New York State and take Alberta and the Yukon in return.
Before fleeing to America, I was Conservative Party in BC. canadians are inherently anti-American (here comes the canuck morons who will shout me down again) and that’s what we’ve been taught in school and they have a really bad image of the GOP, thanks to the MSM. The daily rags are far, far worse than your local liberal daily.
I know of what you speak!
>>The US should give Quebec New England and New York State and take Alberta and the Yukon in return.
Let’s give Canada all the Great Lakes states and New England. We’ll take the four western provinces and the territories in return. Then, we give California to Mexico.
Here’s a better Idea: Canada and the U.S. become THREE nations. Quebec establishes independence. The U.S. conservative states merge with the Canadian western provinces. Ontario and the U.S. northeastern states merge into a third country. Everybody’s happy!
