During the Second World War, governments around the world operated differently. Despite being elected by party, both opposition and the government of the day worked together to solve issues that plagued the country.
Today, there is a war. No shots have been fired, but there is a war nonetheless. It could even be called a civil war, except the boundaries are not north-south, but rather, pro-pipeline and anti-pipeline and pro-/anti-environment.
The battleground is not traditional, either.

As Canadians, this is something we never expected to see. We never imagined our country, our beloved country, rich in natural resources beyond measure, would and could be devastated and turned into a Third World Country.

All we have to do is get rid of our drama teacher and his textbook.
