Is there a constitutional crisis brewing in Canada? Trudeau’s blatant overreach into provincial affairs and the daily lives of average Canadians are quickly accelerating that possibility.

Josh Andrus is the executive director of Project Confederation. He joins us today to explain how the differences between Alberta and Ottawa won’t be resolved under the current constitution, and - like it or not - a constitutional convention is coming.

You don’t have to drive too far outside of Edmonton into rural Alberta before you notice that most of the Canadian flags are either flying upside down or they are absent entirely and only the Albertan one is waving in the prairie wind. Regardless, one thing that becomes obvious is that anti-Trudeau sentiment has boiled over into complete disdain for Ottawa and the Laurentian elite power structure.

As a project of the Alberta Institute, Project Confederation aims to alleviate that tension and bring the provinces back into a united Canada through a series of policies aimed at decentralizing power in Ottawa and away from the PMO in particular.

These include electoral reform, free trade across provincial borders, and the Triple “E” Senate which is undoubtedly popular with those a sense of nostalgia for the glory days of Reform in western Canada.

Josh and I get into all of this and more.
