13. i'm speaking purely statistically
iow, regardless of whether you think it would be a good thing IF people in NY and new england wanted to part o' canada, i am pretty confident that most would not

personally, i like canada, a lot. i visist frequently. but i prefer our system, and there are certain freedoms that i would not want to give up (speech, RKBA etc.) to become a part of canada. i also don't like that they can overturn basic protections with parliamentary override. etc.

i would suggest most canadians would not want to be sucked into the US and vice versa.

i do prefer their health care system, though.
