Turmoil in Vancouver Island: The Dissolution of The Dominion and The International Response

    The Dominion of Vancouver Island is now defunct, as of April 28th, reports say. For the past few months, the political status of the Island has been unstable, with multiple changes in government, all from various ideological perspectives.

    On April 29th, the Commonwealth of British Dominions released an official statement acknowledging the dissolution and further recognizing the claim of the Dominion of West Canada over Vancouver Island. This was met with support by some of our allies, such as the Dominion of Vancouver Island, yet also with condemnation from some, such as President Titania Smith of the Greater Cascadian Republic. President Smith went as far as to suggest that the recognition of the claim was "fascistic."

    It seems that the dissolution is coinciding with a potential resurrection of the Vancouver Island Soviet Socialist Republic (VISSR), a state not recognized by either the Dominion of West Canada or the Commonwealth of British Dominions.

    In response to these developments, Connor Shaw, Governor-General of West Canada, released the following statement:


It is obvious that Titania and the Grand Cascadian Republic is trying to project preconceived assumptions about West Canada onto our nation, we will not be so quickly swayed by this slander against our nation and our people. Vancouver Island is in Western Canada, it has been Canadian and ruled by the Crown since many years before our time. We will continue to assert, with the backing of our allies and countrymen in the Commonwealth of British Dominions, that Vancouver Island is West Canadian and will remain so. God Save the Queen

Opinion - Syndicalists Push to Denounce the Crown

Logo of the National Union of Syndicalists      During the most recent Parliamentary Session, the National Union of Syndicalists presented legislation demanding the denouncement and removal of the Westminster Crown and appeals to the Queen of England.      This proposal was met with an uproar from members of parliament, most voting ‘no’ long in advance of the actual vote.       For weeks before the general election, the NUS had been vocal about their disdain for the crown and West Canada’s fetishization of Westminster. The NUS seeks to pursue a full market syndicalist economy with a proper republic being established as opposed to the Constitutional Monarchy that is in place of West Canada’s parliament.       “This is only the beginning of a long path to a revolution of the common folks and their rightful desires.” -Head of the NUS.       It is unsure what the future of the NUS in parliament may hold, but as of right now they remain a 1 seated minority party; however their numbers slowl

The West Canadian Army: A Legacy of Service

     A West Canadian Soldier      From the time of the British acquisition of Canada, military service to the Crown has been a constant sign of our patriotic devotion. Early militias were formed in times of conflict, serving along side the British Army. With the formation of the first professional army in 1850, the foundation for our West Canadian Army was formed.      With the Confederation of Canada in 1867, the strength and versatility of the Canadian military increased dramatically. By 1869, the Canadian Militia consisted of 37,170 men under arms and 618,896 in reserve. In the years and conflicts to come, many Canadians would be called to service not just domestically, but throughout the Empire. Over 7,000 soldiers would serve in South Africa for the Boer War in 1899, thus proving to the Mother Country the capabilities of the Canadian Army.      In 1914, as war loomed over Europe, Canada answered the call to service by forming the Canadian Expeditionary Force, which consisted of ov

Vancouver Island Situation Resolved: False Dominion Finally Relents

     Last night at 9:54 PM the "Dominion of Vancouver Island" twitter account released the following announcement:     This announcement came as no surprise to those who had been following the situation involving the West Canada defence of the Vancouver Island Province. The false Dominion had asserted for a long time their legitimacy, throughout constant instability, mergers, and dissolutions, however this one is bound to be the last. Following the announcement the Dominion of Vancouver Island twitter account also deleted several tweets which paint their character for what it truly is.     Several theories have arose regarding the "new state" mentioned in the post, with some being a revival of the Vancouver Island Soviet Socialist Republic, or perhaps another try at one of the many other micronations founded by Dustin Carlson, the "Governor General" of Vancouver Island. Time will have to tell in which direction they go from here, but no doubt it will be ri
