Unrest in the Colonies

Does Alberta have a different strategy prepared for when "the West Wants In" is greeted by "Life Doesn't Exist West of Missisauga"?

For all of the exports of common sense which the Motherland has recieved from the West (Cf. Preston Manning through to Stephen Harper), little has changed.All of those Albertans who believe that things will change in the next election have a hope founded on the thinnest of realities.

The simple fact is that Ontarians (for the most part) will continue to vote for centrist parties that are primarily governed by, and cater to, Ontario.As such, Ontario votes for the front-runner, just so long as the front-runner has an agenda of Ontario first.

A sustained government which upholds the regional colonies' concerns on a par with Ontario's will be quickly penalized by Ontario voters. Should we blame them? Maybe not. But we should definitely not rely on them.

Remember, Colonists are not allowed to govern the Motherland. This is the default setting of Central Canadian voters. It is also the principled bias of the cultured despisers looking over the ramparts of Fort York. The Toronto Star, Globe and Mail, and the MotherCorp will crank up their pamphleteering campaigns to engender fear of a Colonist takeover in the Motherland.

Let us not be surprised when the Motherland rebuffs our attempts to seat ourselves at their big table.
