Let's call it Dutch Disease Redux with complications of Confederation.
Since Alberta's petroleum economy has almost unquestionably hurt Ontario's manufacturing base, it is axiomatic that Ontarians will soon demand a revised deal from Confederation.
This is a reality Albertans need to think about. Some may scoff and mutter that Central Canada deserves whatever it gets -- "Let the Eastern Bastards Freeze in the Dark," and all that. But the electoral reality is that Ontario probably has the votes to make a good start on fixing this problem if voters there start to perceive it has gotten out of hand.
