The annexation of the Curks and Taicos was first proposed by Taylor Sullivan as leader of the WAVE Party during MPSP18. Sullivan denied the existence of any population in the country, a fact that was regularly challenged by the other party leaders and by the National Archives.
Following her election victory, Sullivan continued to demand that the country would be annexed by Canada, despite pleas from President Fastro that the people did not want to be annexed. The annexation was included in her government's budget implementation bill.
Following the fall of the WAVE government, new Prime Minister Michael Giesbrecht phoned Fastro and informed him that under his government, Canada would no longer pursue the annexation.
