The province where separatism is now supposedly blossoming is Alberta, the spoiled child of Confederation. Conservative Premier Jason Kenney has been trying to make it appear there's a viable separatist movement here, the better to discomfit Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

In this seditious effort, spread through the use of social media memes and videos, a pious Kenney casts himself as national saviour. "I will never give up on Canada," he said in a recent video -- at least as long as there's a chance he can be prime minister. All the while, he has been ginning up a fake national unity crisis founded on the ludicrous notion that if Trudeau and his Liberal Party are re-elected, Albertans will stream to the exits.

This cynical and unpatriotic partisan tactic by a guy who claims to be "a Canadian patriot" has been aided and abetted by a couple of polls purporting to show support for secession at levels that are, quite literally, unbelievable.
