Did we have a rush of separation publicity before the Conservatives took office? NO!
Where do the calls for separation emanate from? Southern Alberta, those people who go shopping cross border on a daily basis. Do calls for separation come from Southern Ontario? NO!
This means the problem lays with the Mormon congregation in Southern Alberta! And, as founders of the Conservative movement in Canada, they continue to push their agenda.
The last elections when the Conservatives were assured a windfall election with the help of Bell Media and Post media intervention the Con Facebook place had a long list of wish lists regarding changing our Constitution. One item was to make it easier to succeed from Canada! Others dealt with power regulations which would have us buying our electricity from Quebec at advanced prices. There were forages into the US system of Health care and the ability to dissolve the CPP!
To change the Constitution it takes 6 provinces having 50% of the population and the Conservatives are better than halfway there! All they need now is the Federal Chair!
