When it comes to that saying about 'those who ignore history are doomed to repeat the errors of the past' I think we often get it wrong and miss opportunities walking into our future. If your child came home and said he/she wanted to leave home and set up independently, how would you react? Initially, likely, you might be against it, but eventually a mature person would give help and support to the endeavour. If we ARE 'family' surely this is the way forward?

This forum has more than its share of arse-tempered idiots who would rather see the world go to hell in a hand basket than stand down on their inherited views. Canada is a democracy and if the majority of citizens of our 'beautiful province' feel they want to govern themselves independently, we have an obligation to honour their wishes. I for one do not see any evidence (Johnny Walker wisdom aside) that it would cause the rest of Canada to fragment.

All things must pass.
