While in the overlapping shadows of Canada Day July 1 and the United States’ Independence Day July 4, we glance back at the rumblings of Western Separation earlier this century.

Hold your horses.  Wayne E. Benedict summarizes the various parties advocating for an independent Western Canada, and explores the legal possibility of such a move.  “[T]here is no legal obligation on the other provinces and federal government to reach agreement with regard to the desires of a province to secede from the federation.”  Western Independence, March 3, 2004.
