Globe & Mail On Ontario's Impending Call For 'Justice'

Have-Not Ontario Will Demand Alberta's Wealth

In a Globe and Mail article today a new study argues that Ontario is becoming a 'have-not' province.

If Ontario is not getting its fair share of cash from the Federal government, then it is inevitable for Ontario to look longingly towards the oil money of Alberta.

Though some Ontario politicians are reluctant to initiate the idea of a redistribution program (eg. NEP), they would be supportive if someone else did.

Albertans have heard the rumors, and they may prove to be true.

Ontario wants Alberta's wealth.

But the Toronto MSM machine does not see this as envy, but as justice. Their view is that Ontario is the economic engine of the nation, and therefore it is right and proper for it to expect to be fueled by the other provinces---especially high-octane ones like Alberta. From Ontario's perspective, redistribution of Alberta's wealth is simple justice.

In view of this, Albertans need to be prepared for a common tactic of Canadian MSM, that is to argue for Ontario and against Alberta, based on moral grounds.

The issue then becomes, 'Whose morality?'

Alberta's position is grounded much firmer in reality and truth.

Let Albertans never think that their beliefs about right and wrong are separate from their views on the economy.
