    Those orgs prey on the uneducated and weak minded.  Hell a lot of albertans still think that alberta "pays into" equalization and should just stop sending cheques.

    but at the end of the day while they can use that kind of nonsense for political power they know damn well alberta can't make it on it's own and why - and that it's not actually getting anywhere near as raw  a deal as it thinks.

    It's true the three major western provinces all pay more money than they get back. But none of them could survive on their own and it's not as bad as it seems.

    If you want to throw some numbers out that you've heard i can comment on why they're accurate or not but i think you're going to find a lot more 'not' than 'are'.

    Alberta wouldn’t survive on its own? Seriously? Both Texas and California would be in the top ten of economic nations on earth independently.

    The fake Canada holds Alberta back.

    only the monarchy holds Confederation together

    because Canada is not a unified country and never was

    only a monarch allows all these opposing cohorts to share a central bank & associated currency

    No question. My issue is the “management” and distribution of (extorted) wealth.

    In my dreams, Alberta is in line for a World Court case for nearly a trillion dollars in restitution.

    The system is fine. It's the voter that's the problem.  If you're driving down the road and you fail to keep you hand on the wheel, you can hardly blame the car if you wind up stuck in the ditch at the next curve in the road.

    Speaking for myself only, I feel a neighbourly kinship far more with the people of Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, etc to any region of Canada - aside from maybe Saskatchewan. BC is more aligned with Washington and Oregon.

    Pretending we’re the same “country” as the Atlantic provinces is utterly ridiculous. Never mind OntariOWE or PAYbec.

    I don't think it dooms us

    it's just that the government is mostly useless and at times even worse than useless

    thus why the provinces don't actually rely on Canada for anything

    all the provinces are now in confederation with America instead of with each other

    In a sense, an act of future survival rather than “confederation”. Sad.

    I view governance in Canada as being inherently sclerotic

    the Confederation is a failed state

    which is no longer capable of solving even simple problems, never mind complex

    I’ve thought much of my adult life that Canada is more like a realistic 4, 5 or 6 countries pretending to be one. We’ve all seen many breaking up of boarders in our lives to realize this is not likely a finished work. 

    I suppose that’s why I’ve always been a deathly loyal Albertan with near zero care for the rest of the fake charade.
