A national survey has revealed that all Canadians agree that Regina, Saskatchewan should no longer be a part of Canada.

When the news hit Ottawa, an official commission was formed to figure out how to execute on the nation's unanimous decision. It's being led by Edgar Wills, who also happens to be born and raised in Regina.

"We're not getting rid of it," he says. "We're tearing down Regina and moving it to become a sister city to one of Canada's other unwanted places, Hamilton."

The two cities will be ultimately relocated to what Wills refers as "possibly the most useless place" in Canada, Winnipeg.

The new city will be called 'Hammer-Gina-in-the-Peg'.
