In the aftermath of the recent federal election, we have witnessed the birth of #Wexit on line and a growing offline movement. Modelled clearly on Brexit, this meme refers to increasing Western Canadian alienation and marginalization with Ottawa and a desire to make a break for it. The West is obviously frustrated, albeit not for the first time in recent Canadian history, that its views on energy are not being taken seriously and stem from a lack of representation in Parliament. The Liberals won a grand total of one seat in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. That many in the Prairie provinces are angry is a given and the calls for a change in how our nation is governed are growing. Whether or not this all ends in separation is besides the point: these concerns really need to be addressed for the health of our Confederation.
