As of this writing, 1,035 people have signed a petition to sell Montana to Canada.

The petition is calling for Montana to be sold to Canada for the sum of $1 Trillion to eliminate the national debt.

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

On the bottom portion of the petition, people shared their reasons for signing:

"This Montanan totally supports the idea."


"I'm Montanan and hoping to join Canada without the moving costs. Let's do this. Please adopt us."


"Montana sucks and is useless."


"I’m Canadian and making Canada bigger is cool."


"I wanna move to Canada anyways let’s do this comrades."


"My childhood bully came from Montana and it would be hilarious if his home state got sold off to Canada."


"Because Canada sounds pretty nice right about now."


According to the U.S. Treasury, at the end of 2018, the national debt was about $22 Trillion. Selling Montana to Canada wouldn't really help much.
