|FROM BRUCE HUTTON (LEADER)|
"Welcome to the Separation Party of Alberta website. This party and this site were created first and foremost for all Albertans.
Please take the time to objectively review our site to put yourself in a position to honestly determine if our concerns are meritous or frivolous. I believe you will find our concerns have merit even if you are a strong Canadian Nationalist.
Rest assured, it takes many tragic occurrences to turn a once proud Canadian into an Alberta Separatist. I won't bore you with a Canadian history lesson dating back to Pierre Elliot Trudeau but I will tell you that putting 13 Alberta farmers in jail for selling their own grain, something that central Canadian farmers can do, pushed me off the fence and led to the formation of this party.
Many supporters felt we should call our party "The Alberta Party" or "The Alberta First Party" or anything that does not include the word "separation". I convinced the Founding Committee that Albertans had been lied to by politicians long enough and, as a refreshing change, our name should reflect, beyond the shadow of a doubt, who we are and what we stand for.
Meaningful change is impossible within Canadian Confederation given the constraints in our Canadian Constitution. Separation is the only viable alternative and will give Alberta to Albertans.
Again, for the sake of your loved ones, please take the time to study our website and put yourself in a position to make an informed decision on your future and the future of Alberta.
- Bruce Hutton, Leader
|R. B. (Bruce) Hutton's Biography|
This changed in November of 1999 with the implementation of Bill-C68 - the Firearms Act. Bruce founded the "Law-abiding Unregistered Firearms Association (LUFA) to organize the firearms community to force the repeal of what he described as "...a catastrophic waste of tax-payers money that would do nothing to reduce crime, violence and suicides." In January 1999, he warned the Canadian people that the Firearms Act would cost over 1.5 billion dollars ($1,500,000,000.00) and do nothing to make Canada safer. He was chastised by the mainstream media, Edmonton Liberal MP Anne McLellan, Liberal Justice Minster Alan Rock and it was publicly stated that Bruce had no idea what he was talking about. History has resolved this issue as we now know the cost is well over 2 billion dollars ($2,000,000,000.00).
In October 2002 the Federal Liberal Government put 13 Alberta farmers in jail for doing what Central Canadian farmers are allowed to do - sell their own product. This political injustice and social atrocity pushed Bruce off the fence. He could no longer sit idly by watching the obvious double standards that Alberta and other Western Canadian provinces are forced to endure. In February 2003, Bruce met with Jim Chatenay of Pine Lake and Ron Duffy of Lacombe, two of the jailed Alberta farmers, and it was decided that a concerted effort would be made to establish a registered separatist party in Alberta. Hence, the evolution of the Separation Party of Alberta (SPA).
