    I was wondering, Let's say RIM doesn't have the Billion Dollars+ to give the company in Virginia for their supposed BB patent infringements. Let's also say that the Canadian government, as a matter of national pride, didn't want RIM to default. What if they offerred to move something from Canada to the Commonwealth of Virginia to call the debt paid?

    Americans: What would you want from Canada? (and why?)

    Canadians: What would you like to unload on the US, if you could persuade us it's worth the Billion $? (and why do you want to get rid of it?)

    Others: Just chime in with your thoughts.

    I'll go first- (second, actually- Felipe beat me at my own thread!)

    I, as a US citizen, want the clean, thriving, beautiful "other half" of Niagra Falls.
    It's much better looking and better economically than the American side as a city, and
    the view of the Falls is so much better.

    (moving it to Virginia would be a bit of a problem, I admit.
    Let's uncomplicate things by just saying that Canada would give ownership of whatever-it-is to the US, it doesn't have to physically be moved to Virginia).

    Being a Ottawa Senators fan, the Toronto Maple Leafs are an arch nemisis... hence the offer to give them to you!

    The Senators have their number this year anyway... in fact the Senators are at the top of the pile today... pulling nicely ahead of Detroit!!!!!!

    Hofo... oh, nevermind!

    Can we get enough right-of-way to have a direct route to Alaska, making it easier to get the ANWAR oil to the States?

    How about Quebec- then we will have both French speakers and the current Spanish speakers from the other border to dillute our language further... nevermind there, too!

    Let's see what we could offer...
    • A Tim Horton's franchise.
    • Machias Seal Island
    • Free rental, for one Olympic Games, of our Olympic Hockey Team, so you can all relive the 1980 Miracle on Ice gold medal feeling.
    • Toronto (not just the Maple Leafs).
    • A lifetime supply of maple syrup for everyone currently living in Virginia.
    • A wall 5000 feet high along the US Canada border across the prairies, to stop the cold jet stream coming down into the US each winter.

    So far I like PatrickS's offer the best.

    ((Why is our illustrious James the Editor cranking something on one side of his head...
    is he winding up a spring or rubber-band-powered brain or something? And why do lots of people do that when I'm in the room?))

    Serious?- heck yeah!- if we can get something good outta the deal, at least Blackberry's bad news could be good for us!
