A more contiguous acquisition

By the way, do you think Canada would be interested in a slightly larger and more contiguous acquisition? Just floating the idea …

It is possible that the successful integration of Iceland into Canada, would encourage Greenland to subsequently also contemplate uniting with Canada. But Greenland is administered by Denmark, and I for one believe strongly in respecting existing borders, and the rules of international law.

I doubt whether Greenland with a population of only 56,000 would be in a strong position to be accepted into Canada as a province, even if hypothetically it were eligible for adoption. Under such a hypothetical scenario, it would probably be incorporated as a new territory, just as Yukon, North West Territories, and Nunavut currently are.
