What are your thoughts on Montana? If you'd like to see it become part of Canada to help lower the national debt, have we got the petition for you.

Click On Detroit reports that that the petition at Change.org was started about a week ago.

Of course, it's not official in any away, but interesting how many people have signed it. At the time of this post, it's got more 16,400 signatures.

The description of the petition simply says,

We have too much debt and Montana is useless. Just tell them it has beavers or something."

In the comments, someone has come forward, claiming to be the original poster, saying,

If you look at my profile I'm the person who created the original petition and posted it to reddit (u/vAppleJuice). I'm not here to complain or anything just surprised that so many people have "backed" my "cause." From what I've heard it even made some local news sites in Montana as well as the top 25 of r/all. All in all this is pretty epic."

Kind of makes you wonder if ALL the states bordering Canada could get the same treatment... Be on the lookout, Michiganders...
