The sleeping dragon of Western Separatism.
It's been sleeping ever since the federal government changed from the Liberal Alberta-hating regime to the respectful-of-all-provinces Conservative government.
We' ve had federal-provincial peace for years now.
Unfortunately, Liberals at the provincial level have decided to be divisive and once again potentially place Confederation at risk.
Of course, this could just be a clever-but-dangerous ploy on the part of Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach trying to paint himself as Alberta's Savior, following polls indicating that the Wildrose Alliance is leading in terms of popularity by the double digits.
