Turks and Caicos Islands
The Turks and Caicos Islands are a British Overseas Territory. Geographically, they are part of the Bahamas Islands, but remain politically separate. They are known for tourism and as an offshore financial centre.
In 1917 Canadian Prime Minister Robert Borden proposed annexing the islands, and the issue has come up repeatedly through the years. In 2004, the province of Nova Scotia voted to invite the Turks and Caicos to join Canada as part of that province, to bypass the constitutional problems. In April 2016, the NDP -- a Canadian political party -- was discussing the idea of the islands becoming the 11th province of Canada.
