Our new slogan should be "Here's what the West wants"
The actions of this federal government have done more to divide Canada than anything I can recall in my lifetime.

At the conclusion of the election coverage on Monday night, what came to mind was the expression “When life deals you a lemon, make lemonade.”

But I think the people in Alberta and Saskatchewan might want to reach for something a bit stronger over the next few months. This unholy trinity of Trudeau, Singh and Blanchet is a basket of lemons for sure, and we had better hope that our leaders in Edmonton and Regina have a very powerful lemon squeezer to make sure that we are not forgotten or ignored by this divisive group of dysfunctional Canadian leaders. 

Many of my friends on Monday night said things like “What a mess” and “What chaos, how could this happen in Canada?” But it is actually not hard to understand. The Liberals, and especially their leader Trudeau the Second, are regionalists. He is focused on his base in Montreal and his power bastion of Ontario. He is driven by an ideological vision that somehow, by destroying Alberta’s energy industry, he is going to change the world environment and perhaps land himself a seat in the United Nations. 

Jagmeet Singh will be so desperate to hold on to his parliamentary salary that he will bow down and do whatever Justin Trudeau wants and be prepared to support a minority government that lasts longer than any minority government in recent history.

On the other hand, if you have ever had three egomaniacs at a dinner party, you know how difficult the conversation and the discussions can be. I cannot imagine how these three men — one worried mostly about his image in rolled-up sleeves; another determined to destroy Canada’s energy industry and all of the union jobs that go with it; and one determined to take Quebec out of the country — can agree on anything? It is going to be something to watch.
