LETTER: Time to turn off the taps to Quebec — Lougheed-style

How long will we allow Trudeau to malign and denigrate an important and necessary industry for his own glorification….with no repercussions?

RE: Wildrose says Ottawa has declared war on Alberta oil and gas

Justin Trudeau will not get the message until Quebec realizes, directly, and in no uncertain terms, what it would be like if we stopped shipping oil to them especially when they don’t want it anyway.  

Alberta, under Peter Lougheed turned down the taps in March of 1981 and again in June of that year which brought Trudeau Sr. to the table quickly.  

Maybe it’s time to borrow a page from Lougheed’s book? How long will we allow Trudeau to malign and denigrate an important and necessary industry for his own glorification….with no repercussions?

    We won’t have to shut off oil heading east, Biden is going to do it via Line 5…

    …and tank a ton of Alberta jobs in the process.

    I am glad to see that my separatist brotherhood increases !!

    One strong message to you all: a man without property rights has no rights at all! Therefore, no freedom at all – clearly, a slave.

    It is time to move and create WIPA CAs in Edmonton, Calgary and every single town in AB. As many as needed. The war has started and the time is short. During this time.. us or them.
    If you are well intended, you are going to contact me. If you are here just to vent, without any real intention to preserve your future and your children’s future – to actually do something – then fuck off! No wimps needed, as the wimps will give up, first.

    Stop being a bunch of wimps and complainers and just secede from Canada. At this point, there are no options for Alberta’s prosperity within Canada. All the strategies, aside from direct efforts for independence, are chitchat and a waste of time.

    I completely agree. Lots of things we can do, before going nuclear.

    Wildrose is the only western party as all the rest are based in the east and will never allow Alberta any semblance of managing Albertas own affairs. I think there is only one way to help Alberta and that is some form of separatism.

    I agree with Dennis, and D.R.CMOLLOY, that the only answer is for Alberta to leave the cesspool.

    There is no negotiating or working in cooperation with Quebec, or Central or Eastern Canada. They have declared outright war on a portion of their own country, and have made it very clear they intend to crush Alberta with idiotic “Climate Change”, fake pandemics health care crises, and unfair taxes and laws/bills, and encroachment on our provincial jurisdiction and rights.

    The fact that there are disillusioned people in Alberta that can’t see this is a testament to the power of propaganda and fear.

    Quebec and Ontario deliberately set up the system so that Alberta and the West were colonies 100+ years ago, that ensures we exist for their abuse and that they can dictate that we comply with everything they want (shutting down our industries so the Lurential and World Economic Elites can make huge money).

    Farming, Energy, Mining, high-tech, manufacturing, finance, small businesses, you name it, Alberta is being attacked, and they are using our own tax money against us to do it. Who pays for their lawyers? We do. Who pays for their enforces (RCMP, Military is marshal law invoked)? We do!

    Enough! It is time to leave this abusive relationship. We will be infinitely better off on our own.

    Alberta cannot remain part of a dysfunctional confederation and survive. The Only solution for Alberta is sovereignty and neither the federalist NDP or UCP will ever achieve that. There is only one option for Alberta and Alberta Sovereignty and that choice is the Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta in 2023.

LETTER: Message to parents of children 12 and under regarding COVID-19 Vaccines in BC

Do you believe your child is mature enough to offer qualified informed consent?

Published

on

School-aged children are now legally allowed to consent to a Covid vaccine. This became official in BC in May 2021 when Dr. Bonnie Henry invoked the Infants Act, Section 7, which states the government can provide medical treatment if the child consents. It is called “mature minor consent.”

A child is not allowed to drink, drive, vote, or be at home alone. Do you believe your child is “mature” enough, intellectually and emotionally prepared, to offer qualified informed consent as a “mature minor” – a decision that can affect the rest of their lives?

RE: MAKICHUK: Seeking economic diversity when it’s all going to hell

I am a new subscriber to Western Standard and I want to say it’s refreshing to read your no-nonsense articles.

In fact, I enjoy reading all the columnists and it’s good to see some “voices of reason” within such a plethora of left-wing loonies.

LETTER: Alberta government needs to step up and fight for province

Why hasn’t any recent premier of Alberta stood up for our province against Ottawa. I thought that finally, we had a champion in Jason Kenney, but he turned out to be another of Trudeau’s useful idiots.

RE: MAKICHUK: Thoughts, dreams and hopes for an independent West

I am a supporter of the Western Standard. I read your piece on an independent West, and I agree with you for sure.

A couple of points; Why hasn’t any recent premier of Alberta stood up for our province against Ottawa. I thought that finally, we had a champion in Jason Kenney, but he turned out to be another of Trudeau’s useful idiots. 

He spoke many times before his election and a few times after, of the federal government staging “yet another attack on Alberta and our energy sector.”

I wonder how many times do you need to be attacked before you realize that you are at war?

It seems that no one, not Jason Kenney, not even Ralph Klein or Peter Lougheed had an undertaking of the constitution.

If they did, they would understand each of the provinces are already independent states within a confederation of independent states.

We already have control of our future. We just refuse to use that control. We ARE independent, we simply need to exercise our independence. 

Our government needs to step up and truly represent Albertans and protect our future, our rights, and our prosperity.

Maybe dust off that copy of the constitution, if we still have one.

No Media Bailouts

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.

**your signature**



The Western Standard will never accept government bailout money. By becoming a Western Standard member, you are supporting government bailout-free and proudly western media that is on your side. With your support, we can give Westerners a voice that doesn\'t need taxpayers money.
