So I ask you.... What benefits do we get from Eastern Government? BC has been a net contributor to Federalism since long before I started paying taxes ( over 35 years ago), and our taxes to Ottawa have always been substantially higher than our trasnfer payments back into BC. All I get out of Federalism is a great hockey team once every 4 years for the Olympics. Maybe its time Western Canada opted outand governed ourselves. Hope I am not hi-jacking this thread GLG. If so, I can start a new one.
