Dave Reesor is a long-time conservative writer, thinker and activist with deep roots in Canada. Recently, he has undergone some changes in his outlook regarding Alberta’s place in Canada and is now a strong supporter of Alberta Independence. Poletical has spoken with Dave a couple of times in the past. Once regarding his organization Let's Do It Ourselves and again during the Conservative Party leadership race. We sat down with him shortly after the federal election to talk about the results and what this means for an Independent Alberta. The following is a transcript of a lively and enlightening conversation about the future of our political scene.

Quebec is a traitor state and Canadians must unite against the province in the next federal election. But first, I must apologize. To my Canadian friends outside of Ontario, I am deeply sorry. Like you, the results of the election made me chunder and spit with anger. My dimwitted peers in Ontario have helped divide this confederation in ways that make a re-settled Brit like myself shutter in the bones.

It's typical to see Canada's Pravda journalists continue to harp on Andrew Scheer for refusing to answer whether or not he thinks being gay is a sin. Despite pledging to never open the debate, journalists just won't settle with the fact that a political leader can have personal views that might contradict his public policies. Stephen Harper did it for ten years, while his government actually strengthened same-sex marriage laws by legally recognizing foreign same-sex marriages in Canada. .

My next-door neighbours are from Venezuela and they are vividly aware of the situation unfolding in that devastated country. After a recent visit back to Venezuela, my neighbour recounted the stories that have now become familiar to anyone who follows international news. The empty shelves, degraded currency and a state of total disarray. Poverty and crime are now staples of the culture and it will take a generation to fix what’s been broken.

As the new minority parliament sets to convene, one question voters and opposition leaders need to ask is: what about SNC-Lavalin? Now that the Trudeau government no longer has a majority, it no longer has the power to shut down a public inquiry into the scandal. If opposition parties wanted to, they could vote on a motion that forces an inquiry. Liberals will also lose seats on most of the committees, meaning that their ability to interfere or tamper with an investigation would be limited. If there was ever a good time to open an inquiry into the SNC-Lavalin scandal, it would be now. We know Andrew Scheer is eager to do it, but what about Jagmeet Singh and Yves-Francois Blanchet?

The truth is, Andrew Scheer has taken the Conservative Party to new heights. No one predicted that the party would solidify its support in the West and scoop up more than six million votes nationwide. Alberta and Saskatchewan now have zero Liberal representatives in Ottawa and New Brunswick has gone almost completely blue—making it the first step toward a blue wave for the Maritimes in the next round. Had Andrew Scheer lost seats, which he didn't, he would need to resign. Had he lost votes from 2015, which he didn't, I would be calling for his resignation. However, the fact is, Andrew Scheer was successful.
