      In retrospect , launching our'

        To our American friends let me explain red is blue and blue is red, light blue is separatist, and orange is socialist. Green is green.

The election underscored national unity problems which has always been a concern in Canada with the separatist surge in Quebec and western alienation showing in the seat results. Trudeau made a terrible speech last night not addressing this and making his speech at the same time as Sheer's concession speech. Personally I'd like the Liberals to dump Trudeau.
            What a jerk.
            "We want to end negativity" and then pulls such a disrespectful move?

            The Conservatives, NDP and Bloc should get together and pull the plug on this @$$hole with a non-confidence motion, then rotate the PM among the 3 parties over the next 18-24 months. It'd be priceless to see Mr. Dressup and his arrogant attitude evicted from 24 Sussex on the next sitting.

              Most Bloc Quebecois (Lt Blue) supporters are sovereignists, although many would support separating Quebec from the ROC. The difference is subtle, but important. Sovereignists will be happy to stay in Canada, if they believe there is value to do so. Bloc Quebecois did well because they had a charismatic leader and many Quebeckers lost faith in the Liberal leader. It's a protest vote, but an important one.

                  A non-confidence vote won't happen anytime soon. Parties needs to recover including replenish their war chest. Besides, Canadians are fed up with the election, chances are they would turn against any parties that would push for a non-confidence vote too soon and a return to the polls. NDP will not support any coalition with the Conservatives. Bloc would not want the PM position even on a rotation basis. Conservatives need to expand their electoral base, by being more progressive perhaps.

                    We’re going to change for the East as much as the East will change for us we tried to change the East with the Reform party but we were belittled and rejected by the East then Harper was elected and he watered down the Conservative party to try and satisfy Easterners but he too was eventually rejected and is vilified by the East even in this election through Scheer.
                    We tried our best to fix West East relations it’s over this election changed everything Canada is dead the birth of the Republic of Western Canada is the future.

                      with the amalgamation of the RWC and the QBloc, the new parties' slogan is:
                      " Permittez dem Maudits Anglais to, like, freeze au Noir from Kingston to Kenora, eh!"

                        Difference is we’re not looking to be coddled by the rest of the country we actually mean it when we say we’re going to be independent.
                        The country was going to break up someday we need to do it now that we realize that it’s over.
                        From colony to our destiny.

                          It'll be interesting to see what actually happens along these lines. I live in BC and have lived in AB as well and have spent lots of time there over the years. I can't say I've heard many people talk about separation. I know there's been groups come and go over the years that talk separation (I think there was one that included some northwest US states as well, but that seems pretty unrealistic) but they've always seemed quite fringe. Until a new party comes to fruition and start getting elected ala Reform or BQ, I can't see it happening. Maybe the tipping point has been reached, but I just don't see the grass-roots support for legit separation. If Quebec couldn't get the support to separate, then the west has no chance.

                          Maybe if the Conservatives played things smart, they could finagle some 'small victory' concessions that might have a long-term snowball effect, starting with an equal Senate to get more western representation in Ottawa.

                            Honest to goodness, I might have even voted BQ if they had a candidate in my BC riding... I was impressed by Blanchet's sensibilities.

                            • Correct if I am mistaken, but I think that the BQ is a sovereigntist party and not a separatist party like the former Parti Quebecois. The PQ wanted to leave Canada while the BQ is happy to stay (but always puts Quebec priorities first.)

                                The reason Independence is becoming more popular in Alberta,Saskatchewan and Northern BC is because unlike the NEP which crippled us was we could recover from it unlike now because the Liberals are making it impossible for any new pipelines to be built and they’re shutting down the oil sands by 2050.
                                The Liberals are virtue signalling that they’re doing something about climate change by shutting us down oil is still going to be used for another century while we won’t be able to sell ours past 2050 just so the East can feel warm and fuzzy at our expense while they’ll continue to use oil and oil based products well past the 2050 date.
                                The hypocrisy is just stunning.
                                Western popularism in the 80’s was about “the West wants in” this time Western populism is now about “The West wants out”
