It is official now, my fellow Canadians. British Columbia is now accepting federal equalization payments. One of the major factors is the drop in commodity prices and demand from Asia. I thought it might be nice for some of your fellow have-notters to show you the ropes.
You are all welfare bums. Get used to hearing this. It does not matter if you have the exact same job as someone in Alberta or Ontario, you are now lazy. If they are feeling charitable, they might add the caveat “but not you of course” to the bolded statement above.
Work on a new identity. You need something to offset statement 1. For example, they will add for Atlantic Canada “but they are so friendly” and for Quebec “but they have so much culture”.
Expect flak for any dissenting opinion. If you express disagreement on any National policies, you will be called and ingrate.
Now sit back and let that sweet sweet Alberta oil money roll in!
I put this in the pit because I think there is the possibility for some ranting.
