"Wexit" is dangerous, but not because it's ever likely to come to pass.

The economic case for Prairie separatism is so obviously lame -- because of what's happened to the world market for fossil fuels and because people who actually live where there's tidewater aren't interested and never will be -- that such nonsense will never grow legs.

Even if that weren't so, the average age of the folks who keep showing up at Wexit rallies is so ludicrously old, as photos of Edmonton's Saturday night barroom crowd illustrate, that if the idea's not dead yet, it soon will be.
