Very true. Same here.
I am NOT saying our system is better than yours (it clearly isn't), but it seems odd to me that the PM seems to hold ALL the power.
My mom told me that when oil was first discovered in Leduc, Alberta the Province asked the Feds to help develop it. They were denied. So the Province went "south" for investments and expertise which is why most of the oil developed were by U.S. firms. As a result, the Alberta Treasury Branch was also created so that Albertans didn't have to rely on "eastern" banks for loans etc. With the above info, this all makes sense now.Define “the east” in the above statement. Where does “the east” start & stop (?) and is there a portion of Canada east of “the east” in your definition (?) & if so how is it differentiated from “the east” ???
(Personally, when I think Of Eastern Canada I’m meaning the Canadian Dong portion of Ontario & most of Quebec….& I’m not referring to most of Ontario, or NFLD or NB or NS or PEI….that’s why I ask)
