Alberta Heretic Returns To Toronto

Why Living in Toronto Made Me Sympathetic To Alberta Separatism

I am leaving for Toronto today where I will resume my teaching duties at a small evangelical graduate school.

For the last 3 years I have taught at the school during the winter months, and then returned to Alberta for the summers to work with my family on the ranch.

I must confess that living in Toronto has pushed me over the edge in support of Alberta autonomy. Before, like most Albertans I was looking to the politicians at the federal level to bring some change-- but I'm not really looking to them any longer.

Toronto as 'the centre of the universe' is not a great over-exaggeration, but one that does make the point. Even people in Ontario who live outside Toronto, don't like the Terrahnna mentality.

After living in Toronto a bit I have witnessed first hand the domination of power by the tiny handful of elitist, Orwellian, social overseers.

Don't be fooled, these overseers will not stop with SSM. They will not allow Alberta to resist conformity. They will not allow Alberta to resist sharing its wealth.

The fact is, the Toronto elites are on a moral crusade to dismantle the pillars of Western Civilization in Canada.

And so this Toronto elitist morality will be imposed on everybody else.

I didn't realize that they were such fundamentalists (a smear). Their morality is as firm as a cement wall. It is a morality of which they are the law-givers and the priests. The Toronto elites demand your homage. And if you remain under their domain, you will have to give it.

If you are waffling about supporting a New Albertanism, you need to be ready. A theocracy is being imposed from the newspaper and television outlets of Toronto. But it is not one that has God at the head of it (the dreaded Christian agenda), but it has the Toronto elites at the head of it.

The Toronto elites are the gods.

Isn't that what the 'centre of the universe' is designed for?

I'd rather be an Albertan heretic.
