With the exception of Ralph Goodale's riding, I'm assuming....

"Canada isn't doing well right now because it's Albertans who control our community and socio-democratic agenda. It doesn't work," Trudeau said in French to interviewer Patrick Lagace on the Tele-Quebec program Les francs-tireurs (The Straight Shooters).
Sun News : EXCLUSIVE: Trudeau says Canada belongs to Quebec
Trudeau Jr. shooting for NDP country as the official opposition? That might happen with
his foot in his mouth like the example above. Alberta isn't going to separate, nor are
Manitoba or Saskatchewan....BC is the only western province with coastline and
access to non-USA markets....& I can't see them separating anytime soon either.
The West isn't going to separate from the East, as even the western provinces
squabble with each other (recent pipeline royalty B.S. between Alberta & BC for
example) too much to unify beyond economic benefit and mutual disappointment
in federal politics much of the time.
Quebec might eventuially seperate, but carefull what you wish for Quebec, 'cuz
you just might get it.
The OP is just an example as to why, even with all their warts & blemishes, we
can expect Conservative Gov'ts for the foreseeable future. I doubt many here
don't want to hear this, but look at the current options folks.
