When is the end the beginning?

I haven’t written anything in the past few months so that I could observe the progress of our national election. If I were living in the Maritimes, Quebec or Ontario I might be jumping for joy. But alas, I am a Westerner and for us the writing is on the wall. This election was said to be about the fate of Canada’s unity. That fate is now certain.

Since we know that the best indicator of future performance is past performance, we can be sure that the decades long assault on the West, especially Alberta, will continue and in all likelihood will intensify. We can look forward to much higher taxes, much higher immigration without concern to Canada’s needs, a border that is little more than imaginary and incessant constitutional battles between Ottawa and Alberta in an effort to save what’s left of the energy industry.

This election reinforces over 100 years of eastern Canada deciding who governs Canada. Western votes, beyond locally, mean very little in the Canadian landscape. There is some truth in the old Liberal Party war room chant, “Screw the west, we’ll take the rest.”

So what now?

Quebec gets the lion’s share of the fruits of our labour.

This is certainly a boost for Wexit. I do hope that they will take advantage of this turn of events, they must, as goes the old saying, strike while the iron is hot! The Polite Separatist sincerely hopes that all independence minded people in the West will rally to the cause and show unity of purpose because now more than ever, our time has come.

Always remember, you have the power to make a better future.

  1. Dont count on bc to join a conservative secession movement dedicated to the TMX. It would be more likley to induce BC to secede over the illegal approval of the TMX.

  2. I cannot suppprt such a movement. Although I agree with some of your points in whole I’m not on board. I served in the armed forces for 15 years and was in it for the COUNTRY OF CANADA not just some of it! I do not want to see our country torn apart like Ireland or Czeckoslovakia with festering ill-will and, yes, even hatred plaguing us into the future!! What we need is electoral reform not separation!!
