The Voice of Albertanicus

In the bustling crowd of separatists, refederationers and alienated complacents stirs a small, but striking voice. The voice speaks in tones familiar to the assemby, yet what it says pierces their jaded hearts. The voice summons them:
"Sons and Daughters of Alberta,
Look no more to the East for acceptance. Nor should you look to the East with repulsion. Alberta's infancy looked for the former, and her adolescence felt the latter. But it is time for Alberta's Sons and Daughters to leave childish and adolescent ways and move beyond gauging one's life by comparisons to another. It is time to be mature. And with growing wisdom, Alberta must build and create and serve and beautify and cultivate in ways that only Alberta can. Let us embark on a new course directed by clear thinking and tested conviction so that we may lead others onward to unseen horizons."
----This is the voice of Albertanicus.

Albertanicus is a 3rd person device which I wish to use in order to reflect on Alberta, what it means to be an Albertan, and what constitutes Alberta's identity. The purpose of these reflections is to solidify my own thinking, and possibly aid the reflections of others. These reflections, it is hoped, will awaken a new Albertanism which has a positive desire for truth, a cherishing of beauty and a celebration of goodness. This Albertanism will not merely pine away for separation from Canada, but seek to move forward in providing societal leadership for the varied regions of Canada. If Canada does not wish to follow Alberta, they need not be coerced.

And so begins the summons of Albertanicus.
