Canada just doesn’t work as a real country. And anyone who says it does has a very different definition than I do of what a real country is.
My good friend Robin Adair, who was not that long ago named the Best Radio Talk-Show Host in British Columbia by the industry, and is now a Victoria based Government Relations Consultant who is also currently serving as the Executive Vice-President of the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce thinks that Canada is worth keeping together.
It’s easy for Robin to say that Canada should remain Confederated since he’s divided from the rest of Canada by the mighty Rocky Mountains.
As a matter of fact; people within Quebec claim ad nauseam that Quebec is a Distinct Society. Oh yeah? British Columbia is as Distinct in it’s own way as Quebec is, and perhaps that much more.
British Columbia does not need the rest of Canada for its annual allowance. It also does not need Ottawa to manage its fisheries, forests or any of its other many natural resources since British Columbia’s closet neighbor to the North and to the South is the USA.
On the Rocky Mountain side, Canada is really nothing more than a continuance of the continent.
But that’s just British Columbia. The same can be said about Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and even the Maritimes.
Canada has become one big and dysfunctional country that is held together for no reason at all.
