Dear Neighbors, I would like to invite you to escape the upcoming U.S. presidential election nightmare and consider the possibility of joining Canada. Our country may not be as great as yours, but it is friendly, safe and not much colder than Maine is.

So why don’t you organize a referendum, a Quebec specialty, and join us as the 11th province to watch your former country collapse under Hillary Clinton’s lies or explode from Donald Trump’s fireworks? And don’t forget: We still have a Trudeau for prime minister.

Truly yours (I hope),

Denis B├ędard

Montreal, Quebec
