Move over #Brexit, there's a new separatism hashtag in town. #Wexit is trending after the election and some Canadians, especially in the west, want to separate. People in Canada's western provinces are getting on board with separatism after the election results on October 21 and have taken to Twitter to show their support.\nAfter election day in Canada, #Wexit is trending on Twitter. The hashtag is a combination of western and exit because Canadians living in some western provinces, but especially Alberta, have taken to the idea of separating from the rest of Canada.\n"There's a massive disconnect between these western provinces and Ottawa, and now with the results, it's going to get worse," said Rona Ambrose, former Conservative MP and interim leader, on the CTV National News election panel.\nEven though the Liberals managed to win a minority government, there was not a lot of red in the Prairies and to the west. The Conservatives gained 18 seats in Western Canada at the expense of the Liberals who lost 15 seats.\nThe Conservative sweep in the region and a minority Liberal government win amplified some pro-Wexit sentiment on Twitter.\nOne person tweeted "you ain't seen nothing yet" and another said that "#wexit isn't going away."\nToday is a new day. A day where Alberta and Saskatchewan look after their own interests. A day where we start our own country free of anything Liberal. You are all welcome to join the country of Buffalo. Come on over!#wexit #WEXITALBERTA #wexitsaskatchewan— Cangal48 (@cangal21) October 22, 2019\nDismissing legitimate concerns of a large segment of Canadians and labeling them as traitors is exactly why #wexit is trending— Thejollygreengiant (@Thejollygreeng4) October 22, 2019\nBoth @jkenney and @PremierScottMoe have to put on their big boy pants, take this seriously and deal with this head on.#wexit isn't going away. Both libs and eastern Canadians have shown their hand. For our own survival, Alberta & Saskatchewan have no choice but to leave.— Patronessa (@Patronessa1) October 22, 2019\nYou know, I thought I'd be angrier than this. In fact I'm not angry at all. I'm actually filled with hope that we can build a new nation where we are no longer slaves to Ottawa. A place where we serve ourselves, not Quebec— Astrid K (@littlered_ace) October 22, 2019\n#wexit is full on. You ain’t seen nothing yet. AB and SK have had enough. It’s time for a shit kicking. #firewallAB https://t.co/miSUC24sRj— Mary-Ellen Rokosh (@RokoshME) October 22, 2019\nWestern Canada has a nice ring to it #wexit— Oil (@Oilerator_) October 22, 2019\nIn a sea of blue in Alberta and Saskatchewan, only one riding went to another party. The NDP won a seat in Edmonton Strathcona. The eastern edge of B.C. is also very blue.\nDespite the calls for a western exit, a number of Canadians have now hijacked the Wexit hashtag to call out Albertans and other western Canadians.\nOne person said that this is "why the rest of Canada mocks us." Some also don't want B.C. to be included in the Wexit talks and someone else tweeted that western Canadians "won't be especially missed."\nDear conservative western Canadians:I understand you’re upset by the #elxn43 results. I even understand your rage.However, #wexit is *precisely* why the rest of Canada mocks us. First, the name is silly & derivative. Second, it won’t happen.Thanks,Everyone Else. #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/XnohkSRKWJ— Jay Guevara (née Gamble) (@DrJayDrNo) October 22, 2019\nGood morning Alberta. If you support #wexit, inflame separatist sentiment, or see it as a political tool then you’re spitting on the graves and memories of our fallen soldiers. In addition, you’re a traitor. Yours truly -Albertans— Dónal O‘Beirne (@DonoYEG) October 22, 2019\nIf the rest of Canada has to sell out it's own values just to keep Alberta happy then fuck em. You had your way for 10 years. 10 years you boomed while manufacturing left Ontatio. 10 years of layoffs and uncertainty. Unlike Alberta Canada is not a 1 party land #wexit— TORHABSFAN 🇨🇦🧩 #TeamTrudeau (@TORHABSFAN) October 22, 2019\nThis will hopefully be my last post on Canadian politics, but as a BC resident and Canadian, I denounce #wexit or whatever some Albertans have been chanting. No separation of our great nation! pic.twitter.com/mtMcPJZ42n— Cas Fick (@CM_Fick) October 22, 2019\nalbertans are completely welcome to move back to the south where they came from ¯\\_(🙃)_/¯ #wexit pic.twitter.com/ULjCMByMLM— 👻 casper’s 4th uncle Sadballs (@seaberryjams) October 22, 2019\nlmao @ #wexit go ahead lads, you won't be especially missed— blank (@dead_red_can) October 22, 2019\nWould the landlocked provinces to the east kindly stop including B.C. in their #wexit plans?— June Moon (@spoonmoonjune) October 22, 2019\nI've got an idea. we give Alberta back to First Nations people instead #wexit— 400mL of Otaku Blood (@allaganrot) October 22, 2019\nEven though the election results brought this movement to the forefront, Wexit isn't exactly a new thing. The Wexit rumours have been floating around for months, mostly from Albertans who are dissatisfied with the state of politics and think they are being ignored by Ottawa.\n"It used to be the west wants in, and now it's the west wants out, and it's a serious discussion," said Ambrose.\nIt is unclear if there will be official action taken to discuss the possibility of separating or if this will remain an issue that people only yell about on social media.\nThere are stories everywhere.
