These are the actual shirts you saw people wearing.


Don't be silly.......the T shirsts were available during the boom....... eighties.......etc. I got one from a friend in Lethbridge.

I doubt jealousy has much to do with it, Girth. If there was any prior to the pipeline debacle, there is absolutely no reason for it now. It is as if they look at AB as an entity devoid of inhabitants. They speak of AB not of its people. Yet it is the people who are in dire straits. It is the people just like themselves who are in need of assistance. These are fellow Canadians fps.

wHO exactly "hate" Alberta?? That is such a divisive term.(hate)...........and inflammatory. There are differences between all provinces.and some are rather testy...........but if folks really want to.......they can work things out. If they prolong their issues , they might come to a time where they HAVE to work things out.........as there is a bigger scenario than just the individual provinces. The question is: to find the point where the parties are truly motivated to work things out.

If the current generation is not aware of what the boom era was like........they might want to do a bit of research. Alberta could have been way ahead in developing clean energy..........as they sure had the money then. Many could have been employed in energy of the future by now.

So he neutralised his own critic ism.

the REALLY crazy thing is that Biden is using that video in his campaign now The FACT is that other leaders do not like Trump...........and for good reason. He is not likeable and does not play nice with others. and does not comport himself in the way that leaders are expected to do. Being ridiculous is not being different / or effective.


Yeah........that Joe............crazy like a fox.

You found a t-shirt nearly 40 years ago that you found represented Alberta arrogance. Do you still have your Duran Duran cassette tapes?

Please explain is some detail exactly what you mean by 'Trumpian tactics'. I ask this as the man has been so all over the map with his ideas, comments, decisions, and general behavior that I doubt he even knows how to spell the word let alone employ any.

If you feel the need to hate on AB at least use facts that back up your opinion. Please.

Come now , I have never been so upset, since they cancelled Little Mosque on the Prairie .

ok.....then you did not live through the alberta Boom.........or Peter Lougheed.(sp_Who was called the Blue eyed shiek. Alberta was rich, and really booming. .........those were Alberta's glory days. It just didn't plan for uncertainties of the future.nor the changes that were to come. It became too oil dependant......for its economy etc. As a sage will tell you ....nothing lasts forever.Now it must find new ways ......and adapt to the changes that have taken place.

Did not find that t shirt ......It was sent to me from a friend in Lethbridge.

Peter Lougheed was before my time. When you mention "Blue eyed sheikh," I had assumed you were referring to Ralph Klein.

No, the Block is no threat to Canada. They are a toothless dog that can only bark. I don't expect any loyalty to country from them, anyway.

It's interesting. We have cyclical downturns in the manufacturing-rich East from time to time some quite deep. How do Westerners respond when that happens in the East but you're flush with cash? "They're lazy bums. They're backwards and stupid. It's our money! Why should we share it with stupid, lazy bums?" So, when it's reversed and there is less value in pumping money out of the ground than using human creativity .... well ..."We're VICTIMS! They owe us! Give us your political power or we leave you in the dark to freeze!"


Get over yourselves.

This is what CC's family in the West told him at the last reunion, after he tried to hit them up for money due to his unsuccessful investment portfolio. It was the last draw. They cut ties with him. CC has hated the West ever since.

TORONTO - Bond rating agency Moody's has downgraded the province of Ontario's credit rating.

The agency announced the downgrade from Aa3 to Aa2 today, citing the province's $14.5-billion deficit in 2018-2019 and projections that it will continue to post deficits in the coming years.

Moody's says the combination of increased debt and slow revenue growth will result in a faster than previously anticipated increase of the province's debt burden.

The agency says the province will be subject to greater impact of interest rates increases, which it projects to jump over the next three to five years.

Finance Minister Vic Fedeli blamed the previous Liberal government for the creating the circumstances that have led to the credit downgrade.

But Moody's also says that actions taken by the current government to reduce revenue levels will add to the budgetary pressures facing the province.

Those American wannabes down in Canada's penis need to change their one horse auto parts economy into a diverse portfolio.

They had to invest a lot into infrastructure to keep up with demand from the boom, pre boom they had the lowest paved roads per capita and nothing to handle the heavy loads that were in demand to support the industry paying their and much of Canada's bills. Imagine if you will if they were able to keep all their money they handed over for Big potato's equalization payments. Alberta was the first province to build a wind farm in Canada, other than that what other Green technology was there to invest in during the boom?

So when they were car bombing and marching in the streets they were just a toothless dog and misunderstood? The West is verbally complaining and they are treasonous? OK gotcha carry on.

When the East was in their down turns where did they look to get jobs? NFLD?

Oh my. FACT: the world leaders are just tolerating Trump.........as who in their right mind would "respect" him???

..........so trump grabbed his marbles and went home. FACT: NOT FIT FOR thejob ofPOTUS.........or to be a big player on the world stage.

Even the queen looked like she could not wait to see him move on. ( in reception meet and greet) Yet she greeted other leaders with smiles and a warm expression.

FACT: Trump has NO likability factor.........and the world is just waiting until he is out of office. Well...he might still be useful to Putin.

Trump can't seem to get along with ANYONE ..........except maybe Putin and Kim.






The FACT IS that is that if Trump DUMPED ALL HIS Conservative values......................


and began aggressively supporting LIE-beral values..........................


then LIE-berals would LOVE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals are such two faced power mad hypocrites........................



that if Trump became a staunch LIE-beral then women like Warren and AOC....................


WOULD BE LINING UP to let Trump grab their crotches.........................


just to persuade him to REMAIN ON THEIR SIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I think Pelosi has A LITTLE more class than the others by the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals are TRULY INCENSED that Trump offers up more creative and cutting insults than LIE-berals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


As for Justin Trudope being called two faced................................


the TRUTH IS WHAT IT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Those people are your relatives speaking about you. It has nothing to do with Westerners putting people from the East down. That is a personal matter between you and your Western based relatives.

One would think CC is deliberately trolling us. Maybe he never bothered to study Canadian history. Unless he considers two referendums, a Seperatist government, and a terrorist group bombing Jewish and Anglophone homes and businesses not serious.

Trolls are imaginary beings. Perhaps you are just being an asshole who doesn't know he is singular or he (it). Gang attacks on the net is what this place is famous for, piling on.
Where is the 1967 referendum that is needed before Canada is a legal country?? Doesn't fukking exist does it??

What car bombing?
Oh, and when did the Bloc Quebecois lead a march anywhere?
Do your homework, instead of blathering out this bigoted fantasy.
What on Earth are you talking about? The IRA in London?
