Martin must give people west of Lake of the Woods a reason to believe their contributions to Confederation are valued and taken seriously — and not just bribe us with our own tax dollars like the Liberals do in Ontario and Quebec.

Mike, this link discusses another article from the Brandon Sun. Do I maybe need to go to the next page to find it?

The War on Terrorism is now in its 14th year. After George W. Bush's presidency and the defeat of US Democratic candidacies of Hillary Clinton and Rod Blagojevich, the US Democrats finally decided to adopt the war on terrorism as their policy platform, particularly as the simultaneous nuclear bomb attacks in San Francisco, Seattle, and Boston in May 2011 had killed 39% of the Democratic Party base and Washington had the first Republican Senate and Governor for the first time in more than 30 years, while the reconstituted City of San Francisco elected its first ever conservative Republican mayor.
Meanwhile President Bill Owens is busy negotiating with the Federal Republic of the Prairies over coordinating North American missile shield strengthening project and for the first time, the missile shield system will cover areas outside the United States. President Ted Morton had described President Owens as a very valuable friend of the Prairies while Owens remarked that the Prairies is the first nation adjacent to the United States to be serious about the war on terrorism. Following the Prairies' decision to tighten all immigrations and expulaion of all foreign born (including Canadian) Islamic inams, the two countries had agreed to form a single labour market by 2018. When it becomes effective, residents from Yellowknife to Victoria, from Vancouver to Winnipeg will effectively be treated as US citizens when they cross the US border.
Meanwhile, relations with the Realm of Canada remained semi-officially frosty. Many in Canada blame Washington for the terrorist attacks in Toronto in July 2013 and are still bitter over Washington's recognition of the Federal Republic of the Prairies in 2010, which made it all but impossible for the Prairies to be part of Canada again. The Canadian Prime Minister Dalton McGuinty has not yet met President Owens in any bilateral occasions. Because Canada appeared unconcerned with news that instigators of the 2011 terrorist attacks used Canada as their staging point, the United States had decided to implement a policy of bodysearch to all incoming visitors crossing from the International Falls to Calais crossings and reclassified Canadian visitors as equal in status as the visa-waiver nations meaning they are required to carry their passports to enter the United States and cannot stay in the United States visa free for more than 90 days. Teams of volunteers have guarded the Canada-US borders since 2013 and they are unconcerned with the criticisms from Canadian press and people.
The Realm of Canada has been losing its population to the Prairies and the United States by 150,000 per year. The Prairies' GDP has grown by more than 52% while Canada's GDP grew by only 9%. Many of the best researchers have moved to Calgary from Ontario and economic growth of Canada has been languishing at 1.5%. Even with the increased manufacturing operations in 2008 based in Ontario and aerospace and transport industries in Quebec, exports from Canada to the United States declined by 18% as competitions from the Prairies took some shares off the US market, marked by the opening of new Toyota plants in Manitoba and various completely new firms founded by the Prairians such as GBS, CesTech, etc. On the other hand, 1/3 of Chinese, Indians, 90% US draft dodgers in Vancouver, and 95% of the old Liberal Party supporters based in urban centres like Vancouver, Edmonton, and Winnipeg have decided to relocate to Canada as they are not pleased with the direction the Prairies is going. Muslims continue to settle freely in Canada - it is now estimated Canada's Middle Eastern and Pakistani Muslim population is five times the nunber in 2005.
The four Maritimes provinces are raising the spectre of joining the United States after Ontario announces it cannot afford to provide payment transfers to the eastern provinces anymore, while Quebec separatism remains strong, the Prairies' strong economic performances have convinced the Quebecois that socialism does not work and they intend to go it alone without all the federal payment transfers. Ontario residents blame these developments on "those Yanks and their fifth columnists in the West, who have wrecked our nation!". Even five years after independence, Ottawa still has no official diplomatic relations with Edmonton even when Canadians can cross the Canada-Prairies border freely. A survey show that 75% of the Prairian visitors receive discriminations when in Canada, particularly in the Ontario and New Brunswick provinces, and that polls on Canadians reveal the number 1 hate figure is Morton, followed closely by Owens, Bush, and Warren, a conservative former Canadian, but now Prairian, commentator.
