Canada is no longer a country of individuals, we're group-members fighting to get our group moved higher up the pecking order. We're 10+3+31million solitudes warring in the bosom of a debt-besotted, social-welfare state.
For that we can thank the elite-think behind the Charter of group-rights, conditional freedoms and retro-active ameliorations.
(1) Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability (or sexual proclivities -read in)
(2) Subsection (1) does not preclude any law, program or activity that has as its object the amelioration of conditions of disadvantaged individuals or groups including those that are disadvantaged because of race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability, (or sexual proclivities -read in). (83)
I cannot imagine why "the smartest guy in the room" would open this nation within a nation can of worms unless he intended to further de-stabilise the thinking of Canadians and thereby nudge ahead the aims and objectives of the elites hoping to integrate Canada into the USA.
The Parti Quebecquois/ Bloc Quebecquois (PQ/BQ) will take this as a partial, albeit imperfect victory - why not, it was handed to them on a silver platter and the whole trained-seal, bunch of fools in the Commons voted in its support.
The Rest of Canada (ie Ontario) will simmer and pout and then allow the spinmeisters to convince them to put it behind them as 'meaningless and symbolic' while they go Christmas shopping (Holiday shopping for the Secular Humanists, Canada's anything-goes, State-Religion that dares not speak its name).
The West is a different matter. Alberta is tired of this crap and is tired of Prime Ministers basing their electoral plans on the 75 seats in Quebec.
Alberta has a Plan 'B' .... it's called "Or Else".
Alberta (assuming oil stays above $45-50) could easily secede (where in reality, Quebec could not, particularly in the post-1985 Aboriginal Rights & Treaty Rights legal environment).
Alberta in addition to assembling the five components of the Alberta Agenda (Pension Plan, collect its own Personal Income tax, Alberta Police force, its own Health plan, restored role in immigration) is integrating itself with BC (other way around actually) with agreements to minimise labour and regulation differences and trade barriers.
BC & Alberta would make a very nice 'new Texas' - the only state that joined the USA after being a sovereign entity (aside Texas retains the right to split into 5 states if it wants)
Re:nation within a nation, the only questions in Canadians minds should be:
- Is this furthering the creation of 10+3+31million solitudes warring in the bosom of my country?
- If it is, do I want Canada to be divided and (so easily) conquered?
- If I don't want that, why is it on the national agenda? Who/what thinks it's a good idea?
- If I think it's a bad idea, what am I going to do about it?
- Whose Dominion is it anyway?
- Am I a subject-of-the-Crown resident here that just accepts what is offered, hoping the ill-effects won't affect me too greatly, or am I a citizen-shareholder with real rights to object and duties to defend what is mine?
