I recently wrote an article discussing the supposed collapse of what John Ibbitson calls the “Laurentian Consensus” and the subsequent shifting of political and economic power towards Western Canada. In my mind, with Western alienation having been such a major political issue for such a long time, we have to be careful not to simply repeat the problem by allowing Eastern or Northern alienation to become further entrenched. I also point out that, despite what Ibbitson claims, Canadian values have not shifted as much as he seems to claim, and that there’s much more common ground between all of us as Canadians than most people realize.
Comments are both desired and welcome.
