    'Make Alberta Great Again': 'We're Separating & That's What's Going To Happen - Wexit Leader


    Wexit making waves? Hundreds rally for western separation in Edmonton
    Nov 02, 2019


    Wexit Alberta leader Peter Downing is confident Western Canada will secede.


    What's Canada without its western provinces? The separatists at Edmonton's Boot Scootin' Boogie Dancehall are calling for western secession from Canada, dubbed Wexit. About 700 people attended Saturday's rally and more than 262,000 people are members of the Vote Wexit Facebook group. Wexit leader Peter Downing said support for western separation exploded after the recent re-election of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. He cited carbon taxes, equalization formulas and a "direct attack on western Canadian industry" as a few of the main gripes separatists have with the federation. We're going to make Alberta great again, and that is when we cut ourselves off from the leech that is eastern Canada," said Downing, sporting a blue Make Alberta Great Again ball cap.



    Downing said Wexit is often associated with conservative politics, but it's neither a left-wing nor right-wing movement. "It is for everybody except for eastern Canada," he said. The organization plans to register as a political party, and Wexit Alberta will start drafting the province's first constitution in the near future, he said. "We are not, as Albertans, going to sit around and wait on the government to give us a welfare cheque. "We're separating and that's what's going to happen." The lengthy separation process requires an Ottawa-approved referendum, and even if secessionists were to win, they'd have to work with Ottawa to sort through a long list of issues, including ownership over Crown land and military bases.

    According to Wexit Alberta's website, the association is committed to economic liberty, social stability and Alberta sovereignty. Rally attendee Joan Bjornson said she wants to "take back the power." "Until people wake up and realize that you, the people, have the power [and] this land belongs to you, we are not going to go anywhere," she said. "Separation is our only bargaining chip. I don't really support the fact of splitting because this country, I mean, all the people are great," he said. "But we do have to get some power back."
