The right-wing Alberta separatist group that has enjoyed extensive media coverage following last month's federal election is also pushing a range of policies that would turn the courts against racialized groups and women.

"Wexit Alberta" saw its Facebook group swell to a quarter-million followers thanks to free publicity from Jason Kenney's allies, Calgary radio host Danielle Smith and other media organizations who have portrayed the group as a symbol of ordinary Albertans frustrated by the October 21 election results.

Thanks to the largely uncritical publicity, the Facebook group is now saying it will file papers with Elections Canada to become a registered political party.
