    Newfoundland was bankrupt and the UK couldn't afford to subsidize it any more. Joining the Canadian Confederation was Newfoundland's only chance to continue to exist.

      The result found the Commission was unpopular. A 2nd referendum was held in which the vote was 52% in favour of joining Canada, which was formalised on 31 Mar. 1949.

    If we agree to whack Trudeau, Canadians will give us Newfoundland as a thank you.

      No, then you'll be invaded, your "president" hanged, drawn & quartered, & your country's former Mexican lands returned to it. The rest will become Canada's 4th territory.

    Denmark took Greenland for free, too. They just forcibly colonized it in the 1700's.....

    Tomorrow Trump will say he plans to buy the Pacific Ocean and everyone will be focusing their attention on that, Trump is the master of smoke and mirrors and diversion.
