In favour of Wexit

Dear editor,

Now that western separatist movement Wexit has a real, viable, experienced party leader at the helm in Jay Hill, it’s time to start getting serious about what can and should happen to Canadian politics and the possible restructuring of Canada.

The current situation under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s leadership has thankfully spurred many western Canadians into action, but it’s now time to get really serious about the direction Wexit is about to take us.

It is paramount to keep the reality that Eastern Canada will never allow western provinces to participate in politics on a level playing field. Trudeau, former Alberta Premier Rachel Notley and their friends have all but sunk Alberta’s oil industry and the prairie farm family institution, but it’s not them we’re after. It’s Ottawa and Parliament Hill we have to take on.

After Trudeau is long gone, nothing will change in Canada’s balance of power. Western provinces will still suffer at the hands of Eastern Canada. There is only one solution ­­– put our welfare into western hands.

We’re only months away from the first real test – Saskatchewan’s provincial election. The outcome will indicate to everyone the seriousness of the situation at hand.

Unlike Quebec’s blackmail approach to separation, I’m sure the West's version will assure Ottawa the word “separation” isn’t just an idle threat. It will become Western Canada’s salvation.

One of the most satisfying outcomes of western provinces cutting ties with the rest of the country would be having Trudeau remembered as the Prime Minister that finally cut Canada in half.
