The elite of the liberal consensus may well get their way; they usually do. But here's a thing. Money and power and people are flowing steadily westward and the decline of deference continues to drain power out of the common rooms and into the commons.I will not dispute Albertans' right to "chafe" at the "liberal" elite consensus, but I have a hard time believing they sit around thinking they are oppressed by liberal elites and can't wait until their time for revenge has come.
