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.”

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

Runaway Cow in Shawsburg County returned Home safe

     Earlier today around 10 AM MST a cow had escaped from Lenz Farm, a ranch located nearby Coalhurst in Shawsburg County. After breaking out of its pen at the Lenz Farm the cow followed the Alberta 25 for roughly a kilometre until it reached the rail and decided to follow that instead. The cow followed the rail line for an additional 3 kilometres before it reached the outskirts of Coalhurst.      Several good samaritans attempted to intercept the bovine after it had been spotted, but it avoided them and escaped further. These Samaritans searched Miner’s Park for the cow, but could not locate the animal. The search party then returned home, thinking that they had lost track of the cow. However, they spotted it in a citizen’s yard, and some members of the search party went up the Kipp Highway to catch the cow on the other side. A standoff with the cow ensued while the party called for assistance and got into contact with the owner of the bovine. The route the cow was believed to have t

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 r
