Once you open the can of worms, anything can happen. You are talking about forcibly keeping people in confederation against their will.

does your worm can that presumes to be able to separate Alberta from Canada... also allow for sub-divides of Alberta to remain within Canada... I mean, as you say, you are talking about forcibly keeping people in a separated Alberta against their will - yes?

It's unknown territory, My worm can doesn't presume anything, none of us know what would be possible.

Ontario will send busloads of people to Alberta, painted with love and hearts and flowers and Thank you's to woo the shy cowboys and boisterous riggers, let them know they are loved and needed and welcome to ride their horses through our hotels anytime.
Maybe Quebeckers will join in too.
Hell, we could fill buses with riggers from every province and territory who have worked in Alberta!

Sometimes it's important for people to just get to know people, and forget about politicians whose only goal is to divide us against 'the other'.
Sometimes Albertans must forget that we all love the whole country and everyone in it. : )

Jason Kenney's choices: Prop up the failing oil industry or create and sustain other jobs?
https://nationalpost.com/pmn/news-pmn/canada-news-pmn/alberta-ends-program-for-firefighters-rappelling-from-helicopters
"*PLEASE READ* This is a picture of me in 2012 freshly out of Wildfire Rappel training on my first day suited up beside the helicopter. I devoted 4 years to protecting our province, itís communities, resources, and watersheds from that day. I cannot put into words what this program meant to me and so many others. Being a Rappel firefighter changed my life, it showed me direction, it taught me work ethic, it shaped my character, it provided me with timeless friendships. Yesterday the Government of Alberta dismantled the program in its entirety. 40 years burnt down as quickly as a wildfire sweeps through a dry forest. I hope all first responders take this as a wake up call and stand up for their jobs and their rights. This is only the beginning. This province now has less firefighters to protect those remote communities. @jkenney"

Wth?! Getting rid of other good jobs, while still pouring money into the sinking ship of the oil industry?
Oil is going down, and Jason Kenney is taking Alberta down with it.

Hey, look: I might not think much of the 35.76 brains among the Wexiteers, but I still wouldn't call them worms.
