Here's a question for you thinkers out there...
What kind of effect on life in BC would there be if BC/Alb/Sask/Man were to separate from eastern Canada?
Jean Cretien is basically the PM of eastern canada, getting elected by the people of Ontario & Quebec. Those two provinces have almost enough votes in them to get a majority. Granted, some people out this way voted for him, but the majority out here, IIRC, voted for the Alliance party.
So, do you think our quality of life would go up or down if we were to separate?
