I am fully on the Wexit train. Have been for years.
Alberta needs to elect an Albertan next time around. Politics are too complicated for any Albertan leader to dance for their Ottawa masters at the same time they dance to demands in Edmonton.
BC needs to sack up and decide if it wants to be part of the west, part of China, or on its own. Vancouver and Victoria are not the province, so if they think voters in the lower mainland can decide what Fort St John and Smithers can do with their efforts, they need to be shown the door.
Vancouver and Victoria can't even run their own cities. One minor little blip and they are sniveling about bankruptcy. Let em bleed out and let the productive take the leads.
You all know I love my anecdotes so here is another one.
I took my boy on his first big overnight backpack hike. At the Buckhorn camp there were some other parents who were doing the same; getting some quality time in with their kid before the school term starts next week. Being so close to Vancouver, you might expect the granola commies many people picture in this part of the world. But it was not the case. I made a pretty pointed comment, making eye contact with every parent in the group:
"This conversation we are having, would never have been possible 6 months ago".
None of the parents thought covid was a threat. None of the parents were comfortable with the BC school curriculum. They all felt Canada was on its last legs. They all felt the US left was out of control and needed to be stopped. They were all worried about blindly giving up freedoms.
One woman admitted that she had been blind. She was there with her 11 year old son for an opportunity to bond before puberty hits and he would be more attached to his father through a difficult time. Her son helped her see some light. Her husband told her she is not alone, and don't worry about what others thought.
It was camp of red pills. The strenuous hike in might have took some of the programming out, but I really believe that people are waking up.
There are interesting avenues/ loopholes to explore regarding BC joining any western separation movement.
I spent almost a month in BC this summer and was surprised at the lack of masks on people. Even the Asians in Vancouver weren't completely compliant. Hippies on Salt Spring, masks were non-existent; Whistler, Kelowna, nothing other than restaurant servers. Wear it to board the ferry, then meh whatever once you're on. Then back to Alberta and the hysteria ramped up. It's got me a little concerned that when it gets down to it Albertans don't have the stones for separation. You say Albertans need to elect an Albertan; totally agree. But the same Albertans voted to elect Leslyn Lewis to become Conservative leader and ultimately run for PM, and she wasn't even born in Canada. The globalist libertarian streak seems pretty strong, but combined with a hollow bravado echoing the 2A guys in the US, who ultimately won't do a thing about their own communist insurrection.
To me, what this means is that the current Wexit parties and movements will be failures and might even be controlled opposition. Needs a new ideological framework and a heavy branding and sales job to get it done properly, because it won't just fall into place from a support standpoint like I think a lot of Wexit supporters presume.
