If your immigration policy was to deviate from ours in a significant enough way, we'd do something. It's likelier we'd apply pressure on you to conform than to build a wall. There are much less costly alternatives out there to building a wall.
Sometimes I wish my province was a separate country. Not just from the have-not provinces but from ALL of the rest of Canada.

Why can't the premiers in Alberta and Newfoundland learn how to translate resource wealth into general economic well-being, outside of the energy sector? They've both been riding the oil wave five times as long as Saskatchewan, but they seem to have benefited from it less.
>>53485385 Trade surpluses are nice, but sort of pointless if, even when you're running the highest trade surplus in the world, you're still in recession. Having a trade surplus is an indication that exports are doing well. Apparently, German exports are doing well, but obviously there's still something wrong if the Eurozone (including Germany) is stagnating.
>>53484521 Companies can't compete with oil companies offering $40/hr fresh out of highschool. The oil oriented companies then get the best IT, construction, instrument, and environmental workers. So the government either has to subsidize other industry wages or slow oil field growth. Both incredibly unpopular decisions regardless if they are good or not. You should read up on why Alberta doesn't have fuck all for refineries the economic risk the government would have to take is ridiculous.

Why is it that this has resulted in pronouncedly negative economic effects for Alberta and Newfoundland, then, but not Saskatchewan?
>>53486169 I can only guess with what I've read and been told. Sasketchewan got into the oil game very late(I don't know if a change of government helped) Alberta's had the oil sands developped for a very long time but not at this rate. Newfoundland had offshore drilling but the Atlantic Accord made it much more profitable due to the federal government not taking its royalty cut to help grow the economy. Sasketchewan also has very little influx of out of province workers. We've had maritimers coming here for a decade soley oil working and even when oil plummeted 40,000 out of province people still moved here further contributing to unemployment.
