The results of the survey reveal that Over 2000 Canadians who have abandoned the fallacy of hope ranked Nova Scotia the country’s top destination for dramatically whispering a former lover’s name as the waves overtake you one final time.
Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil welcomed the news.
“All life is but a painful joke,” said McNeil as he smoked a clove cigarette and stared into the fog. “And in Nova Scotia, I am the chief jester.

To ease the transition between worlds, I have ordered all railings and flotation devices removed from municipal docks and wharves.”

“We’re hoping this survey, in addition to new sponsored content in the upcoming season of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why, will allow us to reach a broader audience. Virginia Woolf would have certainly chosen us to end her life, had she known about us. We don’t want to miss out on an opportunity like that again. So come on down to Nova Scotia and take a scenic walk into the historic Lunenburg waterfront!”
Newfoundland came in second in the national poll, with respondents claiming they’d rather just throw themselves off the 12 hour ferry ride than wait any longer. British Columbia was a distant third, as it’s just too nice there.
