Equalization really shouldn't be thought of as a transfer from province to province, but rather a transfer from individual taxpayers at the federal level to provincial governments.  In theory, any province could end up being a recipient.  In practice, some provinces always get it, and some never will (probably), so I understand where the province to province sentiment comes from.
