Globe & Mail: On Rebellious and Greedy Alberta

Globe Says Alberta is 'Sabre-rattling'; Adds Q&A about Equalization

Alberta's desire to protect its natural resources and the accrued royalty monies from them is being percieved as 'sabre-rattling' by the Globe & Mail. In another article that follows, the Globe offers a Q&A about how the Equalization system works. The conclusion is that Ontario is not getting a fair deal.

Browse through the related articles (behind the subscriber wall) and you will see Alberta being described as stingy.

Albertans should not be surprised that Ontario MP's will feel a moral obligation to right the fiscal injustice.

With all of the "Ontario as a have-not province" rhetoric, would it not be a logical platform for an Ontario Liberal MP to run on?

Watch for a host of "Ontario First" Liberal campaigns during the upcoming election.

But of course the irony is that Canada is designed to be 'Ontario First'. There is nothing novel or radical in that.

The Toronto MSM is cranking up its machinery to paint Alberta as evil and greedy. Although Albertans have received this abuse for years, the time is coming soon when 'don't fence me in' becomes 'don't tread on me'.

It is the difference between submitting to Confederation or standing alone outside of it.
