VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – When it comes to the Western Province, B.C. it seems dancing to your own rhythm.
This is according to a new survey from Angus Reid. Executive Director Sachi Kurl says we seem to have more in common with our neighbors in the South.
"It is in the province looking south, to the Cascadia idea – which has more in common with the Washington state, with California – indeed, with peace, given our very diverse population of B.C.
She says that relations with provinces, such as Albert, have weakened over time.
"Thirty years ago, British Columbians believed they had more in common with Albert," Kurls said. "Of course, Albertan thought they had much more in common with British Columbia than today.
Kurl says that the changes are due to great differences in values. “We have seen it in the pipeline debate and other issues. And our sense of community is not. ”
What is common to them? According to the survey, people in the western provinces believe that the federal government has acted unfairly when it comes to political influence.
