Hmm. It is interesting, but arguably, very similar to what is in place right now, but even less centralised.

Could be in the future.

It's going to be difficult to run a sovereign nation without any tax dollars, doesn't sovereignty involve self sustainability?

So...are you proposing that we turn the Provinces into States? Wouldn't that just make us a Republic like the U.S.? Why not title this, "Plan for becoming the next 10 states of the United States of America"? Probably because it was too long a name...yeah, that'd be why.

You're...really dumb...aren't you? It would follow that if the Provinces became States, many would either form their own Union or join the United States. Confederation only works because of a strong central government, by giving the Provinces Statehood, you open a whole can of shit. I'm just saying that for some of these new States, a Union with the United States would be a tempting decision, think Alberta. Really that can very obviously be inferred. Try taking classes in reading comprehension and biting satire, it's what I'm good at and what you need to learn.

Why can't we do what the north did in the civil war :P The south tried to leave, and they got their ass invaded. Seriously though, I think the provinces (minus quebec) are loyal to Canada. Alberta, just because they are conservative doesn't mean they want to be american.

Thats my point, there are lots of republic around the world. They haven't joined neighbouring republics, why would that change with Canada? Especially Canada.

We have lotsa money, its "in trust" that we can't even touch, we can't invest.from our oil, gas, lands. that we are currently collecting. Since you Ppl showed up. in the 1400's, I think. Even us we have to still honor the agreements, we can't go down the road and kick off a farmer of 'his ' land. Like what they are doing in South Africa. We just can't.

I think their needs to be care in providing too much money to a local government such as a Band or RM but it there were Provinces or Dominions (there you anti-Americans) these would be large enough to fairly manage money.

Well farmers should be entitled to their land, but they would pay taxes to a government which is predominately aboriginal representing a predominantly aboriginal population. So long as the aboriginal population is in majority it should be possible to develop cultural policy and legal traditions based on aboriginal views and beliefs to which the minority would be expected to assimilate, while preserving everyone’s rights.
