SURVEY: 33% Of Albertans Say Province Would Be Better Off Separating

That’s higher than the support for separatism in Quebec.

A new Ipsos survey shows surging separatist sentiment in Alberta and Saskatchewan.

33% of Albertan survey respondents say Alberta would be better off separating from Canada.

27% of Saskatchewan residents say the same.

Notably, both numbers are higher than in Quebec, where 26% support separatist sentiment.

Support for separation is up 8 points in the past year, while it’s up 9 points in Saskatchewan. An even bigger change can be seen in the long term, with separatist sentiment up 14 points since 2001.

Clearly, there are large and growing numbers of people in Alberta and Saskatchewan who support separation, as Justin Trudeau’s failed governance splits the country apart.

There is still hope for Canada, with majorities in Alberta and Saskatchewan wanting to stay in the country. But unless Alberta and Saskatchewan get a new deal, get fairness, get changes to equalization, and get the chance to bring their resources to market, then support for separatism will only continue to rise.

I have always been a proud patriotic Canadian. Being brought up in a long line of military family members, I was taught that we have an amazing country and way of life that needs to be protected. I see a government that is eroding our way of life with purpose. I am not on board with this. It is not that I am afraid of change, I have lived across this country with admiration for every province and what it has had to offer. It would be easy for me to agree with a separation from a bad marriage. This… Read more »

To stay is to fund the United Nations and Global Governance! To leave is to embrace freedom!

I don’t want to separate. I just want the Liberals out of power for decades and Canadians have to wake up. If Quebec wants to separate, that’s fine with me as they get the biggest share of Federal funding while providing little in return.

on the issue of separation and its merit , only those who have the BROAD perspective or ie what should be a premier and his/her cabinet know what they are talking about ….the citizens do not …they are simply suffering
