Canadian Province Refuses To Participate in Trudeau’s Federal Gun Confiscation

Tall Timbers

Imperfect but forgiven
Alberta Justice Minister Tyler Shandro said his province will not participate in any attempts to seize firearms the federal government under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has recently prohibited, including so-called “assault rifles.”

Justice Minister Shandro explained that he did not want to see the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in Alberta go around confiscating firearms after claiming to have received a letter from the federal minister of public safety Marc Mendicino asking for resources to aid in confiscation efforts set to begin in the Autumn.

“Alberta taxpayers pay over $750 million per year for the RCMP and we will not tolerate taking officers off the streets in order to confiscate the property of law-abiding firearms owners,” Shandro said, the CBC reports.

Good for Alberta! I understand that the Provinces enjoy at least some sovereignty in Canada while the Territories are completely under the thumb of the central Canadian govmint.

Do You Believe ?
Someone's reading Putin's Play book.

1. Confiscate arms
2. Control energy sources
3. Have execs in hip pocket and arrange accidents for the ones who decline the offer
4. Have "church" bless everything you do
5. Re-write Constitution to accommodate Executive actions
6. Take proactive military actions regarding any perceived border disputes
7. Create Axis of Evil Club and establish great perks
8. Tell everyone how much they love you, and arrange more accidents for those who don't
9. Make deal with satan and rule the world......
10. Bwahahahahahaha.... what is that blinding light from the Heavens?

As soon as I read the headline I muttered, has to be Alberta! Go ALBERTA!!!! Great place, we have friends there, and if our family wasn't all so firmly rooted here it would be our preferred province for obvious reasons.

I've never driven through Alberta but next month I may get the chance. I'll be accompanying my son who's got some Army duty at Ft Lee in VA for 4 months before they give him a permanent change of station out of Alaska and he wants to drive there so he'll have a car. He'll have to pay for his own travel but he says it'll be worth it to have a car while he's there. Would get to cross the Sikanni Bridge as well (better late than never). We'd be in a passenger vehicle on this trip. Thought my next trip south was going to be in March... that trips still on.

You'll love the roads there Tall Timbers, they are beautifully designed and maintained, and straight as a die for long stretches, really nice driving. Once out of the foothills by the Rockies, they gradually give way to prairie flatlands as you go south and east. Nice sightlines, no blind curves around cliffs or tight spots against the mountains overlooking drops down the cliffs.

Hope I can go that way in March when I have a truck and trailer too. I don't think my total weight will be over 15000 pounds. If there's any doubt though, I'll need to go down the Cassiar instead.

It requires a National Park Pass to go through, but the Icefields Parkway from Jasper to Banff is probably Canada's highway with the most spectacular scenery. I vacationed there in the spring. It's only a three hour drive to go through that stretch of the Rockies, but I took hundreds of pictures, there's so much to see.

When I did it a few years ago we just had to pay a toll. The scenery is very nice there but there was a lot of traffic. I really like driving through the Muncho Lake area which is either in BC or the Yukon Territory.

Ontario may be on the fence or is it independent from Ottawa City? Montreal may hold sway over the province much like Philly/Pittsburg/Scranton/Hburg shake the rest of the Commonwealth.

Manitoba Next? Followed by American Columbia after they cede from Vancouver, Or is the Island a bit more conservative?

As Hsmommy confirms, Manitoba is in.

Here's how Canadian politics breaks across the country. Read with a bit of tongue in cheek, but it's pretty truthful I think.

West to east cause I live here in BC :D I'll touch on Western and French Separatism at the end.

Vancouver Island and Vancouver are the western bastion of leftist lunacy and greenie environmentalist madness on steroids. They form a little cluster of disgustingness and what Americans would probably call demoncrats in BC.

The rest of BC is like Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, mostly rural conservative values. Think Texas with a Canadian accent! Usually vote Conservative which is slightly more left than most Republicans but it's as Right wing as we can vote for.

Each of the western provinces (BC-Manitoba) has problems with leftist liberals and NDP (soft communists) ruling the roost in the big cities of Vancouver, all of Vancouver Island, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina and Winnipeg. Winnipeg has a large French speaking population of western minded French speakers. The Metis across the prairies have a lot of French roots. French is also prevalent in pockets of BC. Here in Kamloops there is a sizeable French pioneer influence that persists to this day. We aren't all English only, but the main language of the west IS English.

Outside the leftist lunatic asylum cities of the 4 Western provinces, you have a large cranky western mindset of rural western people who don't like Ottawa, detest Trudeau Sr and now Jr, don't trust Ontario and Quebec. That would include me.

Ontario votes Liberal or NDP, rarely Conservative but Toronto's mayor is an unusual exception. Ontario rural and western Ontario voters trend a little more Conservative.

Quebec votes some Liberal, NDP but largely the French Separatist Parti Québécois --at one point achieving enough seats in Quebec they became the official opposition which was kind of funny so we in the west called them "Her Majesty's DISloyal Opposition" because the opposition party is always "HM's LOYAL Opposition". There is an English speaking enclave but it's under constant pressure from the French.

The Maritimes-- 3 provinces; Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland that tend to all vote alike usually vote socialist NDP or "Liberal" which is code for something left of most Democrats.

Up north are 3 Territories (too long to explain how they are different from provinces but for all intents and purposes, they are provinces with privileges and less population) The YUKON above BC, NorthWest Territory above the prairies and Nunavut above Quebec and the Maritimes.

Separatism
Everyone knows that Quebec is always threatening to separate (till we give them their share of the bill and they realize the federal dollars that subsidize them would disappear too) French Separatists are usually just crabby socially conservative French speakers who have a lot in common with

Western Separatists who are usually just crabby socially conservative English speakers from the Manitoba borders on west. The Yukon doesn't approve of Separatism nor does the NWT or Nunavut because they exist due to Federal dollars in subsidies.

That border between Manitoba and Ontario is where the western separatists want to break off.

The things that drive Separatism
French language fears--the French are afraid of being assimilated by what they see as the BORG of Star Trek, the large faceless mass of English speaking North America (they don't seem to recognize that Mexico also has issues but seems to manage fine). They force newcomers to Quebec to exist in French only to keep their upper hand. The rest of Canada is bilingual and allows both languages to coexist, but in Quebec the language police (yes they exist) will get you.

Fear of Trudeau Sr Jr, Ottawa and creeping governmental control of practically everything but especially oil and guns. NOW this is what drives Western Separatism. Long story, Trudeau did a nasty to Alberta's Oil industry, and he basically stole it. Alberta has never forgiven or forgotten nor has BC.

Dislike of having our votes not mean anything. Elections go by time zones across Canada, and voting ends at 8 pm in each time zone. By the time BC votes for example, the rest of the country has already decided who the Prime Minister is, and how many seats his party got. Because of population density in Ontario and Quebec, those provinces decide the election. It usually goes their way although for 3 terms Stephen Harper kept winning enough across the country that he remained PM. He did it the old fashioned way by earning the vote.

Trudeau has done a dirty with the media. He's given them all a nice sweet chunk of tax funded cash subsidies as long as they maintain nice content about him and his Liberal party. He made a deal with Jagmeet Singh, the leader of the NDP so that our opposition cannot make a non confidence vote, and bring us to elections for another 4 years.

So he's crowned himself king of Canada and voters haven't a chance. Our next shot at removing his unwanted self from power comes in 2025 I think, last I looked. That's when he HAS to call an election.

Unfortunately the last 2 elections were lost to him because the Conservative Party couldn't get it together with a decent leader to replace Stephen Harper.

We finally have a chance with Pierre Poillievre and here's hoping.

I find myself becoming a western separatist but yeah, Winnipeg would never let that happen. I do love my country but we can't survive with a Trudeau or one of his fellow believers ruling the country. Our entire hope rests upon Toronto waking up and getting some sense. And yes, the next forced election isn't until 2025
