So CNN’s Piers Morgan finds himself the topic of not one but two petitions: one, currently with about 90,000 signatures, to deport him from the US back to the UK, and another launched in the UK to keep him in the US (only 600 signatures or so).
All of this stems from Morgan’s crusade for gun control in the wake of the Newtown massacre of schoolchildren and teachers.
It seems this is an opportune time to invite Morgan to live in Canada; he could do his CNN show remotely and he’s a fellow Commonwealth member (he’d feel right at home with the Queen on our currency).
I suspect he might also find our gun laws more in keeping with what he believes the US should adopt if these mass killings are to stop.
Piers, come set up shop in Montreal; the best of Europe and North America in one place. And a city that has had its own gun debate after the École Polytechnique massacre in 1989 and is therefore sensitive to the notion of gun control.
