Actually, that's not entirely accurate. Please take my word for it. I lived in BC for 11 years. The people in the west, particularily BC, are very resentful of easterners, particularly residents of Ontario and Quebec. Our votes mean nothing, because ON and QB decide the elections, and we are ignored. Eastern Canada does not understand or respect our culture, our struggles, our way of life. That's why the Canadian Alliance is so popular. It's a protest. It's also why politics in BC are so radical. People gravitate to extremes in times of crisis. Even as we speak, there is an exodus to Alberta as the youth of BC are forced to move to find work. I received reports last week that the unemployment rate in the city where I grew up is up to 22%. That's why I live in Ontario. In the case of Mike, I know there was some resentment in the west when he, a Toronto resident, was chosen to be RSA. Personally, I don't care. I think the job should be given to whoever is most qualified. But I know that some in the west saw it as another example of eastern Canada dominating Canadian politics. So no, Tara, it's not just on the boards. The animosity on the boards is merely a product of the animosity that exists in this country. As far as the west is concerned, you only see what happens on the boards. I see what happens on and off the boards, because I come from BC. This country is not as united as I'd like to think it is.
