Alberta is not akin to Texas? Sure. Whatever you say: except when comparing oil economies, except when comparing the shared disregard for the environment and climate science, except when comparing a retardation in acceptance of secular driven social norms, the religious intolerance, the parallel political spectrums, the polyurban mess of urban sprawl, and this list goes on ...
And ironically, Alberta and Texas are further comparable in terms of the desertification each is experiencing with climate change...
SO. Perhaps the CBC should start a new reality tv show: Alberta's Forest Fires
. It's guaranteed to be 'in production' each year, pending the complete depletion of Alberta's forests.
I'm hoping for at least a 10 season run.
