How much longer are we Albertans expected to submit to the east? It is clear that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has no plans on listening to the western prairie provinces. He proved that by starting his walk to the podium for his victory speech as soon as Mr. Scheer started his speech. Mr. Scheer had about a minute and a half before Justin began talking over him.
How exactly is this action going to help the West and get to know what we, the West, are looking for?
I am sorry to say but both of them acted like they both were given a majority. This was one of the worst election campaigns I have ever seen in my entire life. I have voted for both parties in the past at least once. But on this occasion I was really hoping that there was a rhinoceros party candidate so that I could vote for them.
In this election we really needed two things:
1. A vote for our local candidate, which I think all of our local candidates ran an awesome and clean campaign. So congratulations to all of them.
2. For our leaders we needed the option “None of the above.”
I hope and pray that Mr. Trudeau comes to his senses and starts acknowledging some of the west’s issues. If not, Wexit is going to be a more serious separation issue than Quebec.
At a bare minimum I believe that all Canadians deserve adults to be in our House of Commons. Am I dreaming when I hope that they might start acting like that?
