BACKGROUND:

There’s been a surge of support for an Alberta separatist group since the Liberals secured a minority government, and while political scientists say a split from Canada may not be a real possibility, the anger underlying the movement is serious.

“The idea of Canada has died in the hearts of many, many western Canadians,” said “Wexit” Alberta founder Peter Downing, a former soldier and RCMP officer.

The idea is getting interest from people in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and parts of British Columbia, too, he added.

The Liberals managed to hang onto seats in Atlantic Canada, Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia, but Alberta and Saskatchewan ended up Conservative blue except for one NDP riding in Edmonton.

Do you think the west separating from Canada is a real possibility?
