Wexit

Post by LovelyLadyLux » Tue Oct 22, 2019 5:38 am

Well - you guys might have BREXIT but we now have WEXIT! Which given the Election results tonight of our Federal election (we have a Minority Gov't of Liberals) Western Canada now wants to LEAVE Canada. The Separatists are now starting to claim WEXIT.

Alberta & Saskatchewan are now largely Conservative and since the focus is now on the East they're threatening to leave.

In Quebec the Bloc came ahead STRONG and now the West is alienating ....... OH fun times ahead!

OMG, we have a worldwide epidemic of separatists.
UK wants independence from the EU
Scotland wants independence from the UK
Hong Kong wants independence from China
And the Catalans want independence from Spain.

Whatever happens LLL, tell Western Canada NOT to use Brexit as a role model or they will never achieve their goal
:lol: :lol:

One of the Wests biggest issues is that their economy is based on oil and gas and the present Gov't are stopping it.

IF the Conservatives had gotten in the Pipeline would have been built however they didn't and the Liberals have a Minority. First worlds out of the mouth of Yves Blanchet, leader of The Bloc Quebecois was that they did NOT support ANY oil & gas in the West, they don't care what the West of Canada wants they are ONLY going to DO whatever puts Quebec first! So - so much for negotiations and trying to work things out.

That is going to feed the Separatists (although the Bloc is basically a Separatist Party) in the West and for all anybody knows we will end up with a WEXIT.

I do believe that on a global level we have to do something to get ourselves off of oil & gas but it should be a more orderly transition with development going into something else (whatever that might or could be).

For most of my life Alberta & Saskatchewan were decently rich Provinces because of oil and gas. Trudeau's Gov't has now essentially land locked them as they can't get their produce out of the Province. This has significantly crippled their economy, bankrupcies & suicides are way up along with multi other stats indicating they're not doing well at all and desperately NEED something. They're now solidly "Conservative" however in order to "WIN" the Conservatives would have to buddy up with BOTH the Bloc & NDP so they're basically stuck with not being totally effective in helping these two Provinces sooooooo in steps WEXIT!
