The West: Part 1 - Confederation and Western Alienation

The West: Part 1 - Confederation and Western Alienation

Western alienation is real in Canada. You cannot open a newspaper without reading an article about it. Listen now to Heon and I, as we break down the underpinnings of western alienation that is rooted in our federal system. We explore Canada's federation, beginning with the near-immediate discontent by Provinces towards the federal government shortly after Confederation. What caused this? How did issues of the economy, taxation and the World Wars play a role?

This and subsequent episodes will be very important to continue having a conversation about Western Alienation. Perhaps the most important conversation facing Canadians and Canada today.
