Why do you think only Quebec was allowed to vote on their referendum instead of the Canada being able to vote on if they wanted Quebec to be part of Canada. Retards at the wheel in Ontario and Quebec since their false flag war that never had an end and hindsight would say the war was not really done with 'vigor'.
You can talk all you want, the results of the 1867 vote simply do not exist anywhere, let alone being producible.
With the money they would lose they would certainly go for a united Canada rather than every Province for themselves. Alberta (Prairies) is the first to ink a deal with Israel asking for military protection from 'hostile nations' and 'poof' the iron dome is there for a bargain at $700B, . . . . per year.
Only idiot Trumpites would think this is even a remotely good idea
If Alberta wants to really leave Canada, then TBH no one should stop them.
Same for Quebec.
But like so many say with Quebec, the buck stops the instant they leave. And they pay back any share of debt they owe Canada and so on and so on.
For me personally... I think if Alberta left, either a good chunk of population would leave as well (if the vote even passed) OR the province would quickly want to GTFO of the US not long after joining.
What's needed is diversified clients for petroleum products for Western Canada.
The financial deal between the federation and the provinces has always been excise
Therefore Alberta can perhaps leave the federation (notwithstanding) but the money that goes to the federation for the oil and gas still goes to the federation
I feel the sameway about about Alberta separatists as I do of those of Quebec or, the Maratimes or, Ontario or, Cascadia or, the Northern Inuit Republic.
Forget the damn referendums and pick up a weapon and fight your way out. That's the only way separatism has ever worked anywhere. So load up your 30.06 Remington and take on the Princess Pats or the Van Doos. We'll bury you out in the oil sands and put up a bronze plaque to you for contributing to the resource.
Separatists are all lip, and No brains and, NO guts.
I don't think anyone should be allowed to vote on Separation. That is clearly beyond and in contravention of all Constitutional prerogative of any government. I think Spain handled the illegal separation proclamation of Catelonia properly. They arrested the perpetrators, who are sitting in jail to this day, or in exile.
Canada falls back on its wimpy sense of inferiority and impotence too often. Never more than dealing with the separatist threat from Quebec in the 1960s and 1970s.. which required a muscular and assertive response.. not the spineless capitulation that we saw from the Liberals of that day, or the Meech Lake sell out to 'asymetrical federalism' of Brian Mulroney.
Quebecers are good Canadians. It's the sleazy, power grasping Quebec political class, who want all of the benefits of Canadian citizenship and none of its responsibilities who are traitors to their country and to their cultural identity.
I live in Toronto. I'd love for the Constitution of Canada to recognize Toronto as a Special Administrative Region under a Basic Law that would entrench the International Covenanant on Civil and Political Rights (so no more separate Catholic and Protestant schools to the exclusion of all others), and that would allow the City of Toronto to adopt unilateral global free trade. This would allow Toronto to unilaterally drop all tariffs and quotas and then negotiate its own trade agreement with the rest of Canada, the US, and other states around the world. It could even adopt its own immigration policy too. I kind of like Hong Kongs: as long as you obey the local laws and support yourself and aren't a burden on anyone else, welcome to Hong Kong!
Toronto would face some challenges due to its being comparatively landlocked. But it does have a port and sits on a major lake that gives access to the Atlantic ocean, so that's still something. Also, with free trade with the US, anything from the US could just cross the lake into Toronto and vice versa.
This could also allow Toronto to play the rest of Canada and the US against one another. Since Toronto would be quite dependent on those markets, it could encourage Canada and the US to trade more freely with other countries around the world so that Toronto could then access their markets through either the US or the Canadian one.
Better yet, imagine Ontario voting to become a Special Administrative Region in the Constitution. If Quebec decided to join Ontario in this region, we'd then have a massive free economic zone representing around 1/2 of the Canadian polutation with the St laurence Seaway within its borders with direct access to the Atlantic ocean, unilateral global free trade, and open migration to those who can support themselves.
ANd fukk up the economy even more. Free migration means that we will soon have third world pay and safety.
How did you ever come up with that? Resources belong to the provinces. All Ottawa does is steal what they can when nobody is looking and add to the cost to consumers.
