Does All Of The West Really Want To Separate?
About two years ago I predicted that if or when Jason Kenney became Premier of Alberta he would eventually try to get that province to separate from Canada.
And two years later, with Alberta still seething with resentment over low oil prices, not enough pipelines, and too many Muslims, I'm even more convinced than ever that will happen.
Unless of course Kenney's rube party falls apart and/or he goes to prison.
But who knew most of the west might follow the cowboy province out of confederation?
Or at least that's what David J. Bercuson and Barry Cooper two crusty professors from the infamous Calgary School are predicting.
The date is March 2039, 20 years from now. The Republic of the Northwest is celebrating its 17th anniversary as an independent state. Today it consists of territories that once belonged to Northern Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, parts of British Columbia and the Canadian Arctic north of 60.
And yes, in their minds it will be Kenney who gets the Republic of the Northwest off the ground.
The republic had its beginnings when the premier of Alberta, in March 2020, called a provincial referendum on amending section 36 (2) of the Constitution Act (1982) dealing with equalization payments, and resolving a range of other Alberta-Canada disagreements ranging from provincial policing to taxation.
Negotiations failed and Alberta called a second referendum held in March 2021, as the government had promised to do. This time, along with Saskatchewan, we voted to leave Canada.
And Kenney who convinces Premier Moe of Saskatchewan to join him.
Which wouldn't be too hard.
Since Moe is really dumb, even for an oil pimp and climate change denier.
And Kenney knows how to recruit the best.
Or at least attract the most attention...
But still I found it all very depressing, until I read that the Redneck Republic had thought of calling itself the Republic of Buffalo.
Presumably after the famous Buffalo Chicken Wings.
And that since they weren't planning on taking the lower mainland of BC with them, the Disaffected Liberace was going to be VERY disappointed.
Because he has often vowed to liberate BC from the yoke of the damn Easterners, and Justin Trudeau, PERSONALLY.
And then I couldn't stop laughing.
Although this strikes me as somewhat draconian.
The real problem remains the rest of B.C. The Kootenays, the Cariboo and the Okanagan voted to join the republic, but the Lower Mainland, now in the grip of Green Party fanatics, has become a source of instability to all the territories west of Laurentian Canada.
Discussions in the Senate in Saskatoon contemplated increasing sanctions, limiting the transit of the CPR across our country, and further reductions in shipments of refined petroleum products to Vancouver. There has even been talk of mounting an expeditionary force to bring order to these people.
And this is definitely deeply disturbing.
Ever mindful of Machiavelli’s insight that good laws require good arms, President Isbister gained the immediate support of Governor Malmstrom of Montana, a distant relative and Harvard classmate, who, along with the governors of the other northern tier states, made some 20,000 national guardsmen available if needed.
Threatening to use American troops against their fellow Canadians?
Isn't that TREASON?
And doesn't it tell you everything you know about the state of the Cons in the year 2019?
You know, I don't think anyone can predict what might happen if Jason Kenney tries to get Alberta to separate.
Will it be war, or will it be bye bye and good riddance?
But one thing is for sure.
The next federal election will be between those who love Canada, and the Cons who would destroy it.
And that's why Justin Trudeau is going to win it....

What kind of animal is that ass riding on ?
Poor Rachel. This costume cowboy is the idiot those gas-huffing mouthbreathers want instead of her? Jefferson Davis Kenney says "I was for Albexit before it was cool!" Fine, take your Confederacy of Dunces and don't let the door hit you on the way out. In the words of the great Canadian philosophers Doug and Bob McKenzie, "take off, eh!"
He and Thug are both under actual investigations. Meanwhile even JWR said nothing illegal happened and yet Andy says Justin has "no moral authority to govern." Ezra has finally jumped the baby shark into Hillary "Lock 'em up" territory and is grifting -- er, fundraising a new data-mining website JustinForPrison dot ca. So much for not interfering with the rule of law.
What kills me is how much of a pathetic joke is the M$M that none of this registers on their radar. Be interesting to see if they can't sit on it anymore now that the Mounties have traced the origins of Jason's swamp back to none other than Harper! Wouldn't it be nice, as the Beach Boys once sang, if Ezra's kinky fantasy of seeing a PM in handcuffs ends with a Rod Serling twist of that PM being Scumbag Steve? Grab him by the.... cat tail! LOCK HIM UP!
Election fraud, a common thread with the disciples of the great oily messiah Harper.

Kenney's election slogan should be "Venezuela by 2039 or bust". Wonder what Albertoilya will feel like when it becomes a pawn on the great global chessboard with a US tin pot dictatorship likely the first outcome and down hill from there. Perhaps that's too pessimistic and a Puerto Rico could be the upside if the big 3 have moved on and no one is interested in the tar ponds by that time.
Block of the CPR ? Years of lawsuits and with a new country, international courts. How will that go over with the grain farmers.
College professors eh ? They don't seem to have thought this through.
Shouldn’t the Disaffected Liberace be wearing something a little more flamboyant? ;)
Wow, that story reads more like fanfiction than reality. Why did Maclean's print it, exactly?
Because MacLean's is another garbage Con rag that doesn't do real journalism. Paul Wells' "Imposter Justin" cover story amid peak Fakescandalgate was where they really jumped the shark. It's practically Canada's version of the National Review at this point.
So the Alberta election is for April 16.
The Carbon Tax seems to stick in the Alberta craw.
Seems logical that the polluter pays but that does not fit with the Ford F350 guys, lets hope the gals prefer Rachel to Carpet Bagger Kenney, who seems to be a better election rigger than those damn Russians.
The Alberta Party Leader Mandel, ex mayor of scandal ridden Edmonton, incompetent as ever, had to appeal to the courts and "rule of law" trumping "rule of law" to get his place on the ballot because his minion filed election papers after the deadline.
The decent conservative, always passed over by Stephen Harper, and sideswiped illegally by Bushwacker Kenney; the real "honest" conservative Brian Jean, who might do something positive for Albertans like improve HealthCare, is probably joining a fringe conservative party. Anything that splits the vote and gets the Notley crew a chance to finish what they started would be ok with me.
But we have Global Affairs led by Chrystia Freeland, leading the charge to liberate Venezuelan Heavy Oil for the Koch Brothers, to the detriment of our "Ethical" heavy oil.
All the international majors have pulled out of the tarsands.
Even Imperial Oil is not going to spend as much on the Kearl project.
Why would you when Alberta developed fracking technology has enabled the US to release $15 bbl production cost sweet oil in Texas!
Those 16 year olds dreaming of the F350 and the mountain ready skidoo and quad should think about staying in school, 'cos the days of multi billion dollar projects seem to be over.
Time to clean up the mess!
I'm sure we can find a nice corner of Albertestan for the greasy pork chop to lead his separatists to their doom. It would be a kamikaze mission. And speaking of which, I'm more interested in this exploding scandal surrounding the leadership race. It's astounding that these clowns cant even have a leadership race without some form of corruption going on, against their fellow Cons.
Cons and corruption go together like apple pie and ice cream, peanut butter and jam and most notably for the greasy pork chop, ham and cheese.
Or milk and cookies -- er, supply management. Speaking of fake leadership contests, when's Max going to publish his book about Andy and the fake robocons?
Alberta leaving Confederation, right. Obviously some one has been in B.C.'s best product again.
At least Vancouver Island can be left out of it all. there are areas of B.C. which are close to the Alberta border and its true, its easier to get there than the lower mainland. However, don't see any of them wanting to leave B.C. for Alberta, given B.C. is doing quite well right now, more schools, more hospitals, health care, etc.
Quebec never left and if they didn't don't think anyone in the Prairies will want to leave either. Those who dream of leaving Canada, are out of their minds. They certainly won't be joining the U.S.A.
Successfully scamming fellow Cons in a leadership race is a rite of passage to the inner circle. Failures like Max Max and Brian Jean are left on the outside looking in, at least until they find better things to do. At least Dougie had the smarts to offer pledge of allegiance bribes.
The Lower Mainland's main problem is utterly unaffordable housing.
Its not unaffordable. There are tens of thousands buying it. New condo towers are going up and half of them will be sold to off shore buyers for $6O0K and up. its just unaffordable for people working and living here. you just need to leave Greater Vancouver for it to be affordable. The Fraser Valley, is less expensive, but if you work in GreaterVancouver, its a big commute. What I don't understand is banks who won't provide mortgages for house holds because they don't make "enough" money but will extend mortgages to the same people if they buy a less expensive home but then have to spend $500 a month each to get to work with their vehicles. if they don't to spend so much money on gas, they could live closer in. The government could just dictate if you don't work in Vancouver you don't live there. When I was in Rotterdam back in the late 1960s, that rule was still in place and had been since the end of WW II. there was a housing shortage and that was one way of settling things.
Hi rumleyfips....it looks like some kind of llama. I realize it should have been a big blue pickup but I couldn't fit it into the rest of the picture....
Hi Jackie...yes, I feel sorry for Notley, she is so much better than Kenney, but the redncks in Alberta want Kenney because he'll kill any carbon tax threatening to drag that backward province into the 21 Century. And because he'll show those Eastern bastards that he's serious about separating. I'm afraid it's a story that's going to end really badly...
Hi RT....yes, perhaps the most absurd part about that separatist fantasy is that by 2039 dirty oil will be a relic of the past, and Alberta having failed to adapt to reality will be a have not province begging for handouts from the East they love to hate. Good luck with that one...
Hi rumleyfips...I have ecperienced two separatist dramas, one in Quebec,nand the other in Scotland. Sominthink I can safely say that the Bercuson/Cooper scenario is an absurd fantasy with absolutely no relationship to reality.....
Hi anon...I tried to dress him in a camouflage skirt, but unfortunately it didn't fit. Next time I'll see what he looks like in a blue velvet gown...��
Hi KM...that's a very good question. Unfortunately I got carried away with the comedic aspects and didn't question why it would appear so soon before the Alberta call. My guess is that it's designed to add some xcitement to Kenney's campaign, by encouraging some of the dumbest rednecks to believe that Kenney might succeed in getting Alberta to separate, so they get out and vote instead of staying home and drinking moonshine. I actually believe it's dangerous to encourage those kind of people, but that's Albertonia..
Hi JD...stop it you're making me hungry. 😼 It's too bad Notley couldn't have delayed the election call for another six months, so Kenney and half his party could be charged, tried, and jailed before the vote. However, if as expected Kenney does become Premier or Great Leader of Alberta, Justin Trudeau is the only one who can take him on and that should make him really popular in the rest of Canada. Let's try and consider Kenneybas a useful,idiot....
Hi e.a.f....I very much doubt that Kenney will get Alberta to separate, but BC will be his first victim. I heard Kenney the other day listing a series of things he plans to make BC pay for daring to hold up his precious pipeline. From blockading the Trans Canada to cutting off your supply of fuel. So if I were you I'd start hoarding food and fuel...
