Why Now Is The Time For A Political Push For Autonomy In Alberta
With the recent approval of Bill 96, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has granted his home province of Quebec the greatest piece of political autonomy in modern history.
Offering an ability to amend the Canadian constitution, PM Trudeau has transitioned Quebec into nationhood status. No other province has been granted this right. Ironically, our ruling PM has selected the singular province which abstained from signing the Constitution Act in 1982.
What a massive privilege this is. The whole thing reeks of Eastern-centric favouritism as advanced when Pierre Trudeau repatriated our constitution to erode Canada's connection to Britain.
Despite Pierre and Justin Trudeau's animosity toward western Canada, there now exists a ray of hope- that is, if the government of Alberta or other western province act fast.
