Wexit Alberta has officially applied to become a registered political party in Canada
Wexit Alberta just applied to be a registered political party alongside the Liberals, NPP, Bloc Quebecois and the like.
It's the first step for a small group of people who want a Western exit (Wexit) of Alberta from the rest of Canada following the last federal election.
Those supporting Wexit Alberta have sent in over 500 signatures to try and become a political party, with founder Peter Downing telling CTV News that he plans on doing for Western Canada what the Bloc Quebecois has done for Quebec.
Gaining small amounts of traction shortly after the election, not many Albertans are convinced or impressed by the movement.
Supporters of the movement also held a Saturday afternoon rally at the Boot Scootin' Boogie Dancehall in Edmonton, where several hundred attendees called on Premier Jason Kenney to hold a referendum.
White Alberta’s privilege is so bad that they think they can #wexit out of Canada lol. Did any of you consult with the many indigenous communities? Pretty sure you can’t seperate with land you don’t own you fools. #Ableg #Abpoli #Cdnpoli— ⚖️Leah McRorie (@LMinYEG) October 22, 2019
While the group shows very little sign of slowing down, VICE News recently reported on how Downing and co-founder Patrick King have a history of accusing the liberal government of "normalizing pedophilia" as well as "pursuing an immigration policy aimed to depopulate the white, Anglo-Saxon race."
As an Albertan, I denounce the Wexit movement we're hearing about in the strongest terms possible. I don't believe they even remotely represent the voice of Alberta. Albertans need to stand up to these malcontents. I'm Albertan and #ProudToBeCanadian #abpoli #cdnpoli— Kyle_Itzy 🇨🇦 🕹️ (@Kyle_Itzy) November 3, 2019
