Vancouver Island To Be A Province If Separatists Get Their Way
The Huffington Post Canada | Posted: 08/06/2013 2:43 pm EDT
I have often spoken and written about Vancouver Island becoming it’s own province, and now someone is doing something concrete about it..
I have links, below, to both the Federal and provincial petitions being circulated (these need to be printed out, signed and returned.)
We have consistently voted against the rest of the Province, most of the time anyway..and we are almost solidly NDP..’We have a vibrant agricultural, fishing and forestry sector, the arts are alive and well, with I would guesstimate more artisans living and working per square inch than certainly the rest of the Province, and possibly the rest of the country..we are one of the key tourist destinations in the country, and even our largest urban area is a sea of tranquillity and easy going compared to the frantic pace of the outliers…
We have been isolated by outrageous ferry costs, on what should be simply a part of the highway system..we are heavily taxed for this but derive almost no benefit..our senior centres are closed and/or privatized, our hospitals are fought for, tooth and nail, our health authority is a poorly managed pathetic joke, and we pay through the nose for services we never seem to qualify for…ever…We believe we are perfectly capable of deciding our own destiny, despite what the idiot naysayers in the Twit-sphere are saying (never was a form of social hiding and snarling so aptly named…)
It has been a long time coming, and success may be out of reach but we need to try..we would never consider stepping away from Canada, quite the opposite…we just want to decide our own destiny..if Newfoundland and Labrador can do it, so can we..
Take a moment to read the links and make up your own mind….
