Quote of the Century from Chris Selley – 100% of Canadians know for a fact what this country would look like if the oil sands were in Quebec.
“We get oil from Alberta. We pay for it. They don't give us any special price, so they should thank us not send us chains of insults,” said @yfblanchet. “It is not a reason to say OK let's keep doing something which is wrong because some people in Quebec do it.” pic.twitter.com/sxZjR7q67y

We don’t share the same country. Why do we continue to pretend?
Bold mine.

Many of us don't.

I Want A New Country

Quote:
Great news;

A highly credible new leader has stepped forward to lead the Wexit movement. For Canadian federalists, like me, it’s bad news; for Western separatists it’s great news.

Jay Hill, the former whip and House leader in Stephen Harper’s federal Conservative government, has taken the reins of the Wexit movement — a fledgling entity that aims for Western Canada to separate from Canada.

In an understated announcement made on the Wexit Canada Facebook page Tuesday at 5 p.m., Hill was declared the new interim leader, taking over from Peter Downing. So why is this 67-year-old former Reform party MP launching this seemingly impossible task?

“Simply, in one sentence, I’m doing this for my grandchildren,” says Hill, who has three preschool-aged grandkids.

...

“Western Canada is never gonna get a fair shake from the rest of Canada. Confederation does not work. It cannot work. It is not structured to work.

“Those in the golden triangle of Quebec, Toronto, Ottawa, they don’t care about the West except as a cash cow to feed Quebec and the Maritimes,” said Hill.
Bold mine.

Agreed.

From the comments:

Quote:
...Jay Hill is a scrapper and very organized. He is an Old He Coon, Trudeau will put out his hand and pull back a stump The CPC party is a dead man walking in the west They just lost more than Trudeau. This going to be epic.


Sounds like someone I can throw my support behind.

The ‘Wildrose’ is back: FCP & Wexit members vote to form new party

Quote:
The Wildrose is back on the Alberta political landscape.

Members of Wexit Alberta and the Freedom Conservative Party voted overwhelmingly Monday to merge their parties into the new Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta.

A total of 97.5 per cent of FCP members voted to ratify the agreement, easily surpassing the 75 per cent required by the party’s constitution, and beating the 90 per cent predicted by FCP president Ricky Northey.

On the Wexit Alberta side, 96.1 per cent voted ‘yes’ to the merger agreement, which required a simple majority.
More:

Quote:
The rebirth of a party under the Wildrose banner has the potential to disrupt the current political landscape in Alberta. A poll conducted in late May for the Western Standard found that the theoretical new party had the support of 10 per cent of the electorate without any leader at the helm. The same poll found that between 45 and 48 per cent of Albertans backed an independence vote on the province’s sovereignty.
Bold mine.

The Trust Fund was pillaged to pay for Ontario's economic failures via equalization payments.

I Want A New Country

Quote:
And by golly, Trudeau may be just the man to make it happen;
It was the second time in two weeks the Trudeau Liberals have let it be known that they intend to start spending big time in an attempt to remake Canada’s economy during the pandemic.

“Justin Trudeau is weighing sweeping changes to the country’s social welfare system and a series of economic measures that will align Canada with ambitious climate goals,” Reuters reported. Those comments mirrored what had been leaked to the Toronto Star more than a week earlier, Trudeau wants to remake the Canadian economy using the pandemic as an excuse.

So, what can we expect?

Based on those leaks we should brace for much higher government spending, expanded social programs, new taxes and a real push to shut down Canada’s oil and gas sector.
Are you paying attention yet, Premier Moe?
Comments salient, from whence comes this:

Warning! Liberal spending blitz ahead

Quote:
With the sudden resignation of finance minister Bill Morneau, Canadians should be asking a simple question: are the federal Liberals about to embark on a new spending spree? Differences in views between a finance minister and prime minister are common, but with Morneau’s departure the signal seems to be to loosen the belt — which is not easy when you’re already planning a deficit of $343 billion. Perhaps the new minister of finance, Chrystia Freeland, will be a stronger personality with her own ideas of belt tightening. We shall see.

When I say “spending spree” I’m not referring to the multitude of temporary support programs that are already producing the gigantic deficit in fiscal year 2020-21. No, I mean permanent public spending, including growing interest charges.
More:

Quote:
People with earnings up to $48,000, for example, would face marginal tax rates as high as 74 per cent under the 50-cent clawback (or 40 per cent with the 15-cent clawback).
Bold mine.

Eye watering...

No.

Wexit co-founder wants Alberta to become part of the U.S.

Quote:
Political staffers driving into work at Alberta’s legislative assembly on Monday should prepare themselves to come face to face with Donald Trump.

The Alberta USA Foundation, a public action committee led by Wexit co-founder Peter Downing, has paid for a billboard on 109 Street near Jasper Avenue which features a photo of the American president and asks the question: “Should Alberta join the U.S.?”

Downing believes Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s vision for Canada is going to “spell our economic death in Alberta” and that joining the United States would solve Alberta’s economic and political problems.
Bold mine.

Not even close. It would simply compound the problem. Independence is the only option.
