Debates on the New Constitution in the House of Commons

    Around roughly 5PM MST, the House of Commons were scheduled to have their final reading and vote on the new constitution for the Dominion of British North America. 

    Around this time, the head of the National Union of Syndicalists (NUS) took to the floor in protest due to the “lack of outline for basic civil rights” and “no formidable structure for state’s rights or legislature.”

    Sebastian went on to motion late into the third reading for a new constitutional convention late to be convened where all members of the House of Commons would 'attend and contribute as opposed to the few in the higher echelon of government that originally drafted the document'.

    Following this motion, three other members of parliament had seconded but the Clerk of the House reminded them that 'deferment to Committee was to be proposed following the second reading'.      

    The Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition made a statement rebuking some of the Criticisms by Members of the Conservative and Syndicalist Parties with this statement: “While I do not agree with the harshness of your criticisms, I do concur that the document requires a more specific nature in order to be interpreted correctly. We simply can not leave any part of our constitution to be exploited.”

    A subsequent statement by the Prime Minister went further stating, “It's very pertinent that we get our country off the ground to begin with, we can make amendments to the constitution following the passing of the constitution, and if we shoot down the bill now, it will be a long period of time before we can rerun this bill, and it may kill any momentum we have.” -PM Forsberg.

    Following these statements, the majority of Parliament members present have so far voted in favor, including the Syndicalists. However Sebastian has quoted: “If the conservatives won’t stand by the people, we will.”

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
