Our Confederation was, and is a monopoly, made up only by and for, Ontario and Quebec, on every decision that is made in Canada, political or legal. In our (“democratic” ?) system change can only be initiated by a prime minister, who is ever-sensitive to the voters of these two largest provinces. Trudeau may be unable to balance budgets, but he can count seats in the House. Power exists for power’s sake, and, to be fair, Conservatives have played the same game,with the same end results. In conclusion it doesn’t matter which government is in power, the out come will always be the same,Alberta will always be on the losing end.
Individuals and provinces alike that are supposed to be protected equally by our Constitution, but simply in reality, are not ! It’s unfortunate, that in fact, it’s so malleable, that it conveniatly only applies selectively in practice for the benefit of (Ont. &Que). We see our constitutionally entrenched provincial resource rights, trumped by simple federal environmental legislation. The Supreme Court has never selectively upheld the articles on interprovincial trade regarding Alberta, or that would protect Albertans’ constitutional rights. We see constitutionally entrenched provincial resource rights trumped, by simple federal environmental legislation. . Elective change is effectively blocked by the so called,democratic majority(Ont. & Que.), and judicial change is stymied, by a refusal to uphold our Constitution’s written word, that all provinces previously agreed to. With this conclusion, the belief that this is a democracy based country is just a simple, farse or lie ! Premier Smith take notice ! ! !
Albertans are seeking independence, not only for the many historical grievances, or technical details of equalization and environmental regulation, but also because of the philosophy behind those federal laws. Eastern Canadians always ask the Fed. government to solve their problems. While this may work for them, it is in fact,all the while, using the federal government now to destroy Alberta’s livelihood. Based on this ideology it is morally wrong. Imagine, using provincial constitutional authority, to bring Alberta to heel, again,this is simply, morally wrong.
Alberta must be allowed its belief in private business; limited government, and individual rights. Having a provincial police forces; it’s own pension plans,the unrestrickted right to impose the not withstanding clause, immigration controls, along with many more rights, all these flow out of this philosophy. If we believe these ideas are nothing more than bargaining chips, or a spoiled child’s tantrum, then we don’t understand the root cause of the our problems. Albertans’ righteous demand for respect, and self-determination is not what will destroy Canada—that will come from easterners’ failure, to acknowledge our different objectives,priorities and opinions.
It’s easy to argue Alberta must seek independence, because Confederation is broken, but the truth be known it is much worse. Alberta must seek independence, because Confederation is functioning exactly, as it was designed for: TO CONTROL AND CENTRALIZE POWER FOR AND ONLY FOR (ONT. & QUE..) With
Ont. & Que holding forever,the overwhelming balance of power, change is impossible. We who seek independence are mocked, by those who fear Alberta independence. This is hardly the vision of a Canada we so dearly loved, but something more sinister and rather, much darker

There is no way to edit your comment. but it is ok.
But I have little faith in emails as I have sent out to business’s, politician’s, yes we all get automated replies. When you do get a reply back often you only speak to a department and if you reply again there is no understanding from previous emails This is why many business as you to to call and when you often the person is from Philippines or India. If you are lucky it is looked after.
This is why business direct messaging system such as WhatsApp or Signal that is used mostly by the Caucasian market in US & Canada.
If you wish to reply to me it is free by WhatsApp or Signal and your reply will not be shown on my mobile but also on my computer.
