Hello! I am an avid Canadian Western Separatist and believe that the West should leave the East, I would like to put up a few stipulations and rules for this debate

When i say Western provinces, I mean the following Provinces Of Canada:
-British Columbia
-Alberta
-Saskatchewan
-Manitoba

Also, for the debate, these stipulations would be preferred for acceptance:
-While it is not necessary to be a Citizen of Canada, i would prefer you have a good knowledge of the politics of Canada, as well as a good grasp of Western Canadian Politics.
-Please use the first round for acceptance and an opening statement.

I believe that the Provinces listed above would be better of seceding from the rest of Canada and becoming a new nation.

Good luck!

I accept this debate. BOP is on Pro as they are looking to challenge the status quo.

I'm assuming R1 is acceptance only.

Since BOP is on my opponent, and they forfeited, I have nothing to refute.

@Sam7411, there is, but I'm Canadian and even I had no idea that there was one in the West. Normally it's just Quebec that whines about separation every time they hold an election, then forget about it once it's finished.
