Alberta independence as a self-defense strategy
The Western Standard: "Due to current and forthcoming federal policies, Alberta needs to see itself as a community under attack and act accordingly. The attacking force is Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government, and every avenue of defense has been exhausted, short of independence. Complaining to Ottawa about unfair treatment, launching court challenges, and even a referendum on equalization will accomplish nothing. They have been tried and found wanting. Therefore, achieving independence must become the goal if Alberta is going to have any sort of meaningful future.
"Of course, Trudeau is not using military force against Alberta, so this is not a shooting war, and it will never become a shooting war. The only necessary and effective weapon is the will of the Alberta people, expressed through a clearly-worded referendum on independence."
