Separatism

Popular movement in Quebec and Alberta aimed at forming right wing republics under the political and cultural guidance of France or the United States. Separatism began in Quebec as a social democratic movement designed to invert traditional domination by anglophone Canadian business interests. In Alberta, the sources of the movement can be traced back to a longstanding wish of Albertans to reify creationist theories, along with absolute enforcement of missionary positions in social and sexual politics.
