The rest of Canada deserves an answer.
Multiple choice answer:

a) because we are strong enough to act independently of Toronto's control,
which makes us the envy of every other state.

b) because we incur Toronto's wrath because we can appeal directly to
Washington when we have problems, and usually get what we want. The rich in
Toronto don't like this because they can't profit from delaying it.

c) because we do not need military help with snow clearance.

d) because we attract emigrants from Ontario who say unanimously how bad
Ontario is.

e) all of the above

Alberta has:

Scholastic achievement scores much higher than the average.

A standard of living 10% higher than the US urban average.

The fastest growing building and housing boom in the country.

A government program to provide high-speed internet access to the entire
province.

A business-friendly government that indirectly provides much better for its
citizens by providing jobs, than by using socialist handouts.

No provincial sales tax.

The most hours of sunshine in a year, the most beautiful national parks and
the cleanest air in North America.

Porn IS legal. Government sponsors the project to ensure a 'digital divide'
isn't spread further than it already is. The internet services are run
privately, assistance provided to companies to aid moving into markets were
capital recovery isn't possible due to the costs of infrastructure.

Bible, yes. Tooth fairy, no. What does this have to do with us having a
business-friendly government? At least it's not Ottawa where they dole out
grants just prior to an unemployment count and then let everyone get laid
off a month later.

Actually, no, it just covers the 7%-15% price hike that everyone else in the

I don't believe the author stated that he supported Ralph, the PCs or any

POrn is legal? Must be new rules in alberta. Currently you can't
even drw pictures of minors in suggestive poses. Ask the people in Ottawa
about photgraphing their 3 year old in a bathtub. SO you admit the
capitalist government includes using taxpayers money to exploit markets via
the internet that would otherwise be unprofitable In other words a subsidy
or socialism for the rich

IN otherwords you live in fantasy land so whatever the govt says
must be true just like whatever is in the bible is true. Whats the
difference if a company goes tits up a month after a govt grant or six
months the poor bastards are still out on the styreet and collecting FEDERAL

Your ducking the issue the parks are federal and were
created long before Ralpjh was made emporer. A good thing too Ralph would
have sold em by now.

You're ducking again. I don't know about TO I don't live there
despite what the natives of TOronto say there is a little life in other
parts of the province. Besides smog is the smell of money. If weren't for
smog you guys would be have to live off scamming tourists at the stampede
and klondike days.

Got all the salt beef and pork ready for the winter yet?

you have a nice day

I don't think that Albertans are Stupid. I'm surprised that over 10 posts
can come out of a very poor troll though.

I'm not sure which one I like the most? Oh! OK, it's the one where The
State Of Alberta immediately assumes the post originated in Ontario and acts
in a knee jerk manner. Man, that guy is Ontario-centric in his hatred.




I wonder how he'd be, compared to the person I made friends with, who was a
"slow speaking Southerner" (from South of the Mason / Dixon) that was a
Softball nut. All he knew of Canada was the great times he'd spent in Val
d'OR, Québec (close to Palmarolle, the town of NHL Hero Rogie Vachon) where
(as he said) "they didn't speak English in the bars, but we had a great
time!"

(K): What are you going to 'trade'? OUR oil and some sick cows (ask your
American pals)? How about you take a lesson from Canadian history and
see how we Canadians handled the last secessionist province, Quebec? Your
premier is still waiting for compensation for his one mad cow, anyway....
not likely your province is going anywhere until you get your extortion
money. Which, by the looks of it, you're not getting.
