As an Albertan, I would like Rex Murphy to write a column about what it is that keeps Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba from putting money and resources together, rolling up their collective sleeves and building a railway from Fort Mac to Churchill in Manitoba, refurbishing that ideal, deep water port, and loading tankers there.
Would he be writing about the lost pioneering spirit of Canadians, and nonexistent friendship between provinces in the federation?
