According to a recent National Post poll, Canadians think Canada is broken. The woke progressives with six-figure incomes quickly jumped onto the social media airhorns and told us that Canada is not in fact broken compared to the dozens of truly broken countries in the world. Nevertheless, events over the past month have revealed just how weak, incompetent and nefarious our ruling class and the bureaucracy they “govern” truly are.

The Baby Boom was the cohort of children born between 1946 and 1967. The peak year for births during this time was 1959. This makes the peak of the Baby Boomers 61 years old. In the early 1970s this boom ended and, with cheap and normalized contraceptives as well as liberalizing abortion laws, the fertility rate in Canada fell below the replacement rate. In other words, by the early '70s Canadians stopped having enough children to maintain a stable population. Without immigration we would, eventually, start shrinking.

Canada could end up being one the most affected countries during the Wuhan Flu pandemic, but the chances of us getting through it are a lot higher than most countries. We have top notch doctors and healthcare professionals—but, that doesn't mean it will be an easy ride to the finish. The most vulnerable people among us are those over the age of 60 and those who have pre-existing medical conditions.

The Conservative Party is morally and intellectually corrupt. It wasn't me who said that, it was Maxime Bernier. Although his party doesn't really offer an honest or viable alternative to the Conservatives, Bernier was right when he accused the CPC of being out of touch and morally inept. He is among a growing number of disaffected conservatives who have taken their business elsewhere, or who are now planning to. After the Conservative Party's latest leadership debacle, more of us are seeing the same kind of party that Maxime Bernier saw when he decided to pack his bags and leave.

I recently re-read the Diane Francis book, Merger of the Century. It was published in 2013 and had a lot of great insights and topics within its easy-to-read 345 pages. She outlines the case for a US/Canada merger and why it makes the most sense for both countries. At the time this book was published, Canada was riding high on the peak of the latest commodity boom.

One of the biggest impediments to Alberta Independence is the sentimentality of Canada in the hearts and minds of Albertans. They may complain and moan about partisan politics, but when it comes to patriotism, they beam with pride. It’s hardwired for people to believe that loving your country is a part of being a good person. No matter how dysfunctional and corrupt Canada becomes, Albertans still have a belief in the country that transcends the issues of the day.
