Alberta Liberals Stereotyping Separatists

Werner Patels thinks that Albertans who support separatism are greedy, selfish, xenophobic, and impliesthat some are racist!

For a fellow Albertan to be so out of touch with why his neighbors would be considering such a significant political option is incredulous to me.

Looking beyond the rhetoric of Alberta separatists, and Mr. Patels himself, has he not noticed that this past Summer of Discontent in Alberta has brought many folks to separatist conclusions, who have been resisting that option for years? These are people who are heart-sick over their beloved Canada and what it has become.

These Albertans have been federalists for ages, as they have plead with tears for the rest of Canada to stem the growing decay that is happening in the nation.

But these Albertans are not going to be fools either. They see that the way forward in providing a prosperous and secure home for their children is to seek an auotnomous Alberta, and an independent one.

Sadly Mr. Patels' stereotyping of his neighbors as bitter and dangerous is exactly the kind of elitist attitude that Albertans see among the Liberal party both federally and provincially.

It is for this reason that the Liberal party has seen only limited success in Alberta.

The surprise will come when a dark-horse party like AA or SPA charges past the Liberals in voter support.
