I have not herad any cons about splitting up Canada into several separate countries here.
The pros are that each separate country will be stronger, richer and more of a reflection of the distinct cultures in each separate area.
Are you a hopeless hill-billy who has just seen civilization.
If you have a large country and you break it up into smaller pieces. Then the smaller pieces are going to be mindless satelites were larger countries or are sucked up by larger countries, lets say America. Now if you want to go to America, fine by me, but you are not taking Canada with you.
Second, Alberta, has enough oil for 20 years, 50 at the most. Once the oil is gone it will have nothing and will be looking to join with these other smaller states or America and suck of them like a parasite.
Alberta does not have a distinct culture. Quebec does, the areas under aboriginal control have a distinct culture, but Alberta, B.C., Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Ontario, the maritimes have a large "British" culture. They might have differences to them, the Praires being more 'rural' and conservative, but they are fundamentaly the same.
How can each newly seperate nation be 'richer' if they all have deficits, the Quebec one the one I can think of now. Alberta when they run out of oil, will rack up so much deficet everything will go. Use your head, oil does not grow on trees. Alberta has nothing else except oil, I should know I lived there for five years. It is a cold crapy province that complains to much.
The only pro I can see for B.C. seperating is that Marijuna will finally be legalized.
But the point is that, the only two places that want to seperate are Alberta and Quebec. Alberta then heading to the states! And because Alberta uses "Western Seperatism" Easterners think that it is the entire west. If they said Alberta, Ontario and Quebec would enjoy kicking Alberta out.
So IAMCanadian even though you are not, those are the cons to confederation. Talk amongst your friends and when you say that oil will be gone at the most 50 years and you have no way to fund any programs then they will say, "I am Canadian".
