Why Statehood?

Alberta needs to control its own destiny- beginning with a vote on becoming a US state. In addition to requiring a majority of Albertan voters to agree to statehood it will require an act of congress. 

The Liberals and Trudeau have made it clear that they don't care what happens to Alberta or its economy. In the words of Justin Trudeau "Canada is the first postnational state”. He added: “There is no core identity, no mainstream in Canada.”

Alberta's declaration to Justin Trudeau: "We have a core identify- we are young, educated, diverse and vibrant. We are inclusive. Despite Ottawa's attempts to keep us down we will fight for our rights and our freedoms. Alberta is joining the USA for “sunny ways.”

There is no reason for Alberta to stay in Canada. Culturally we aren't Canadian, as that has come to mean whatever Ontario is. We are Albertan. Plus there are plenty of reasons to join with the US. The economy is foremost- Alberta trades more with the US than with other provinces. Secondly, mobility of the workforce; ever wanted to live in a US state? The entire USA is now open to you! And the USA just got less expensive to visit. The GST disappears. Taxes are lower- the US dollar buys a lot more. Gas prices are less. New businesses will show up in Alberta. More jobs and opportunities for Albertans.

Article IV, Section 3 - US Constitution states:

New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new States shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.  

Let’s do this Alberta. This is our destiny- and we will decide!
