According to this British report, us Yanks were working on a plan to kick them out of Canada back in the 1930s. Apparently, they owed us some dough for the war and the folks at home were very grumpy. I'm glad we all got over that one!
Here's the dish from the Daily Mail.
"In 1930, a mere nine years before the outbreak of World War Two, America drew up proposals specifically aimed at eliminating all British land forces in Canada and the North Atlantic, thus destroying Britain's trading ability and bringing the country to its knees."
FDR put the smack-down on the plan as well as other domestic and foreign scenarios.
