|Our classifications explained:
1. Pro Alberta Independence sites: These sites fully
support Alberta independence, and thus deserve to be more prominently
2. Pro Western Canada Independence sites:
These sites support the concept of an Alberta independent from Canada,
but within an independent country consisting of Alberta with all our or
some of Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Manitoba, the NWT, the Yukon
Territories and Nunavut. FreeAlberta.com is less supportive of these
sites, because: 1.) the likelihood will be greater if we simply need to
convince Albertans rather than Western Canadians and 2.) Albertans are
quite different from Western Canadians that aren't Albertans. The
things that define Albertans like the energy industry, ranching and
individualism are scarcely found outside of Alberta.
3. Quebec Sovereignty Association
Those who advocate Quebec sovereignty
association should be considered friends of the Alberta
independence movement. We both want the same thing: out of Canada.
4. Other Relevant Links:
These sites, while not explicitly supporting independence from Canada,
these sites actually make the argument why Alberta should leave Canada
without coming to the obvious conclusion. In many ways, they are like
the smart kid who shows all his work done correctly, but simply arrives
at the wrong answer on his math test.
5. Media Links:
These are sites from television, radio, newspapers, magazines and
professional journalists whose arguments are consistently pro-Alberta.
isn't there a link to the Separation Party of Alberta?
There is not a link to the Separation Party of Alberta because they are
an anti-Alberta party. Quite simply, this party has become the
personal fiefdom of Bruce Hutton. The SPA rejected the election of a
new Board of Directors in October. In doing so, they rejected the
Constitution of the SPA. In addition to having no credibility by these
actions, they have been unable to capitalize on the overwhelming and
increasing pro-independence sentiment in Alberta. When 43% of Albertans
indicate an interest in pursuing independence and are the Separation
Party of Alberta is growing as slowly as a Columbia Icefield glacier.
Quite obviously, the SPA has not capitalized on this sentiment, and
this argues that the leaders of the SPA are simply incompetent. This is
strangling the independence sentiment in Alberta, preventing it from
becoming a legitimate political movement.
isn't there a link to the Western Canada Concept?
The Western Canada Concept is detrimental to the Alberta independence
movement. Doug Christie is a racist bigot. And let's be clear: Doug
Christie is not an Albertan. The fact that a racist bigot like Doug
Christie associates himself with something hurts the Alberta
independence movement because sane people will reject any movements
that are bigoted. Initial investigations by an Alberta patriot could
lead him to mistake the Western Canada Concept for the most preeminent
party representing independence from Canada. And that initial
investigation will be followed up with an immediate rejection of the
independence movement because no sane person will choose to associate
themselves with Doug Christie.
The same criteria is applied to other potential links as well.
this website related to the FreeAlberta blog (a linked website)?
Not officially, but we both support Alberta
independence and I support their website wholeheartedly.
