CALGARY The First FOOD-WAR (First on North America) began when the breakaway HEARTLAND States of America crossed the Canadian border with intentions to secure the rapidly northward expanding Food Belt for themselves.
The Canadian Federal Government was unwilling to commit the Canadian Armed Forces in defence of the western provinces following back room political pressure from the USAmerican Federal Government.

As the HEARTLAND States invaded, Albertan Premier Albert Roth led the charge putting intense political pressure on the other western premiers and ALL western based Members of the Canadian Parliament to declare independence.
In an impassioned plea by Alberta MP Chase Ivarson in the House of Parliament Ottawa for the Federal Government to "Act or grant us independence" was met with deaf ears by the reigning Liberals but resulted in all 129 western members of Pariliament to walk from the House in unison.
Even befoer the "ACT OF UNION" was signed Premier Roth had called on all members of every police force, RCMP and military base in western Canada to aid their nation. The response was alarming with nearly every military base and the RCMP training centre in Regina Saskatchewan volunteering.
Even with such a massive response the Western Canadian forces were severely outmatched by the HEARTLAND Forces, until three engineers at MAG-Star Engineering in Calgary brought forward a failed propulsion experiment of theirs.
The device was supposed to provide clean propulsion but the controlling unit required was beyond existing technology it did however have the ability to send high particle bursts great distances. Bursts strong enough to knock the biggest tanks the HEARTLAND Forces had a full kilometer back in a second. Strong enough to obliterate incoming Fighter Jets from the south and even strong enough to impact a nuclear cruise missile, detonating it while it was still over Montana.
Quickly the HEARTLAND Forces retreated with the new WESTCAN Republic debating counter-attack.
Cooler heads and the looming threat of intervention by the Federal Government of the USAmerica ended such thoughts.
With Roth voted in as Prime Minister of the new Nation there were some who believed WESTCAN could not succeed but the nation has in fact proven to be one of the strongest economic forces on the planet and came through the Eco-Crisis with the lowest fatality rate of any industrialized nation.
