Sell Montana to Canada for $1 trillion: Petition

A new online petition is calling for the United States government to sell Montana to Canada.

The petition’s authors argued the U.S. could sell the state to its northern neighbours for $1 trillion in order to help pay off national debt.

“We have too much debt and Montana is useless. Just tell them it has beavers or something,” the petition said.

More than 3,400 people had signed the petition by Wednesday evening.

Who knows where they think Canada is going to get that kind of money… but maybe Mexico will pay for it.
