Why would Alberta want to separate from Canada? Do you think it's just about oil? If you do, you'd be wrong. It is about CULTURE. Alberta has a different culture, or way of doing business, and of viewing the world, than Ottawa. Ottawa once shared these values, but has increasingly been at war with them. Alberta values individual liberty and traditional Democratic freedoms.
Provincial freedoms are a reflection of individual freedoms, and as Canada increasingly creeps towards dictatorial powers, Albertians are growing concerned. Increasingly Ottawa, and the East, are viewing the Western Provinces as colonial land that they have conquered, and are stripping for their prosperity.
Some in the West seem to think we can still reason with them and that they will eventually see the logic of our commonly held traditional freedoms. But power corrupts, and Ottawa seems to be beyond reasoning, they see only power, absolute power.
This is clearly seen in this National Post article which we will highlight here. This story is ironic, in that Ezra Levant wrote a book called, “The Libranos”, which sought to defend the proposition that the Liberal government is corrupt and abuses power. And, almost on quo, the Trudeau government appears wielding its governmental bureaucracy like a sword against this outrage, the outrage of shining a light on their roach-like behavior. How dare those lowly specks speak out against the evils of the ruling class, how dare they report to the plebs the disgusting backroom, power mad, money stealing behaviour of the Libranos . Trudeau is practicing the politics of fear and power. He is petty and evil. But he is just the head of this decaying beast, a personification of its corruption. Removing him doesn't remove the dank infrastructure that supports him. It is easier for the West to leave confederation than to try and clean up the East. And now a word from Rex Murphy, detailing his opinions on this story:
