Words ‘western separation’ and ‘WEXITALBERTA’are trending on Twitter in Alberta. Facebook group called VoteWexit.com has more than 170,000 members and rallies are planned
In the Alberta legislature today Premier Jason Kenney called on the federal Liberal government to address Alberta’s concerns about the energy sector and equalization.
Kenney sent a five-page letter to re-elected Prime Minister Justin Trudeau today. He congratulated him on his win.
“I underscored that the deep frustration expressed by Albertans is very real,” said Kenney.
In a tweet earlier Tuesday afternoon, Kenney said Alberta voters sent the strongest message in our 114 years to Ottawa.
“They elected Conservatives with 70% of the vote, the largest democratic mandate in our history.
“National unity & economic prosperity require a profound response. We must get pipelines built & get a fair deal in the federation.”
