I would agree that Alberta is the most politically backward province, and until recently, I always had a bit of a soft spot for its endearing redneck attitude. Things are different now. They went from a bunch of obnoxious conservative crybabies that brought an arguably healthy oppositional voice to the country, to having a frightening amount power and influence.
To make matters worse, it looks like these assholes are on track to take over the provincial government. That means terrible things not just for Alberta, but for the entire country.
There is some serious ignorance spreading through the country, infecting what was once considered a relatively progressive nation with oil-fetishist, climate-change-denying, hate-filled fundamentalist bible thumpers.
