A petition to ‘save’ Alberta from Canada has been started by American Lhris Ceeson.

Ceeson says Alberta’s values side more with those of the values of the United States and that Albertans deserve better than the hatred they receive from the rest of Canada and the Canadian government.

So far, the petition has 1,164 votes, saying it only needs 336 more votes for the petition to be sent to President Trump.

The Canadian province of Alberta deserves better than the hatred it receives from the rest of Canada and its government. The values of Albertans are more accurately reflected by those of the United States of America. As a state, Alberta would be able to regulate its own healthcare, minimum wage, gun laws, and remain relatively the same should Albertans decide such.

Should Albertans decide to secede from Canada, President Trump must take immediate action to offer statehood and annex the province if necessary.

Here’s a look at some of the comments from supporters:
