An Immodest Proposal for Helping Displaced Economic Migrants of the World by Relocating them All to Canada

The widely ridiculed Mother Canada statue planned for Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton is going to be erected for the fallen Canadians of overseas conflicts. But it could very well be repurposed as our version of the Statue of Liberty; a welcoming beacon for the millions of displaced people scattered across the world. Mother Canada’s outstretched arms—facing the Atlantic—can embrace the war-ravaged and poor-stricken as they enter our land of peace. With a population of only 35 million and a land area of almost 10 million square kilometres, Canada has the space for the UN’s estimated 60 million forcibly displaced.
