Derek Fildebrandt launches Alberta "Equality or Independence" campaign

Keean BexteRebel Contributor

It was a chilly morning out at the McDougall Center in Calgary, Alberta. We were not entirely sure what the press conference would be about, but MLA Derek Fildebrandt eventually came out and spoke to the media. 

I had my hunches; as you can see, the sign on the podium says, “Equality or Independence”.

There have been a lot of questions surrounding the future of Alberta in Confederation recently and we have yet to hear a response to this public outcry from the political establishment.

Derek Fildebrandt from the Freedom Conservative Party currently holds only one seat in the legislature — that's his own — and it will be interesting to see if these separatist (or “sovereigntist” undertones, as he calls them) help his poll numbers a little bit.

I’m for separation. If Alberta separates I’ll move from BC to Alberta.
