An End to Quaintness in the Maritimes

Two years ago, Stephen (“the Sheriff”) Harper told Maritime Canadians they’d have to pull up their socks, shed their culture of defeat, end their dependency on government grants and seasonal Employment Insurance. Local politicians and Liberal spin doctors wailed. But these last few days Atlantic Canadians in the hundreds have turned out to hear the Sheriff speak. Why? Dependency has forced Maritimers to stand-by while Ottawa’s diplomats allowed foreign fisherman to rape their fishery, dependency has allowed Toronto’s media to patronize Atlantic Canadians (“quaint” is how Torontonians like to think of them) and dependency has allowed Ottawa’s command and control bureaucrats to sap Maritime morale still further. A morale based, no-nonsense Maritimes would generate the type of success Ireland and Iceland have accomplished across the Atlantic.
