Seems as though it’s a loud group, but the numbers show most are good with staying in Canada (and who can blame them).

Economically it makes sense for Alberta

I remember back in the day when Quebec had serious thoughts of independence, economic experts said the most viable thing for the rest of Canada was to join the US

If Quebec left the roC would be sliced in half. The North-West territories create a land connection between BC and roC, but as best as I can tell there's no current road connections that don't go via Alberta. BC, NWT and Yukon would become a pene-exclave that separates the US exclave of Alaska from the main territory. I guess those same economic experts would make that same claim if Alberta joined the US.

I don’t see why geography would be a factor we literally have a state in the middle of an ocean. I’m sure they considered transport with Quebec as a thoroughfare

For the US it’s not a factor for Canada it is a major one.

Politically, the US would never accept it, at least not without Canada's approval, and a blue state to add to balance it out.

All other considerations aside, can we just talk about how weird the shape of the US would be if this actually happened?
