Re: Should Western Canada Leave Confederation 2

The BNA Act or how Canada was drawn up is irrelevant. Alberta has 6 Senators. Nova Scotia and New Brunswick have 10. NL has 6 and PEI has 4 - two less than Alberta with the population of metro Red Deer. A prairie hick town. The point of "law" is meaningless at this point. Alberta should halt welfare...

Re: My name is Connie and I'm a COVIDIOT

Edmonton had passed mandatory masks on transit and in city buildings for Aug 1st. They've now matched Calgary for masks in ALL indoor places where public are - supermarkets, retail, malls, etc. It starts Saturday.

Re: Should Western Canada Leave Confederation 1

Alberta will never be a recipient of welfare transfer extortions in our time. Alberta generates far too much revenue ultimately targeted to OntariOWE and PAYbec. It will also never have a sales tax in our time.

Halt the colonial extortions tomorrow. What is POTawa going to do about it? LOL

What's good enough for PAYbec is good enough for Alberta. Secondly, the RCMP have to be profoundly thanked for their primarily rural service and asked t...
