It’s time for a Bold New Direction for Alberta.
While times have changed nothing has changed for Alberta’s role in Canada.
Since 1905 Albertans have fought for equal representation, in what is now a parliamentary democracy and constitutional political party monarchy system designed by the Eastern political elites to work against Alberta, as Canada was moulded prior to 1905 by Wilfrid Laurier prior and later by in 1982 by Pierre Elliott Trudeau to entrench the creation of Canada by two provinces (Quebec/Ontario) for the benefit of two provinces.
Albertans from every generation have tried to fix the tyranny Alberta has gone through since 1905. From Laurier in 1905 to equalization in 1957 to P.E. Trudeau in 1982, to a Reform Party that wanted in, to a Prime Minister Harper who couldn’t fix it, and even today some who believe a new “fair deal” and reform of the Constitution itself can change Alberta’s role in a system that no longer works. It’s all just “playbook politics” by the political elites and career politicians to keep Alberta in its place. The system of tyranny is entrenched, and unfixable.
It’s time for Alberta “cut bait.” Albertans have had enough and a new beginning is ahead. Albertans, while proud of the Canada they knew, see it has changed, and while many Albertans still hold some sense of being Canadian, the simple truth is it isn’t the Canada we remember being proud of any longer. In fact, there are significant cultural and economic distinctions from the rest of Canada that have existed since 1905 and are still relevant today. The Alberta economy is fundamentally based on high economic GDP per capita value agricultural and resource extraction (oil and gas) able to extract vast wealth with a 4.3 million population combined with a political culture generally dominated by both small-“c” and large-“C” conservative politics and economics. This compares to the rest of Canada which has lower economic GDP per capita value manufacturing and government base and tends to significantly favour more left-of-centre policies and parties.
