Amalgamation was, is, and will continue to be massively unpopular. Everyone tries to ignore it, but it's pretty clear that the elephant hasn't gone away.

You're right. It hasn't.

And what's infuriated me has been the stock response to bringing it up: 'Oh, that would be too expensive!'

Um... Let's talk actual figures, shall we? Until then, please don't insult all of us...and be patronizing in the process...but patting us on the head and issuing this reply.

As I've said here and elsewhere, those who choose to ignore this 'elephant' need to understand what the construct puts into play. And it's not just about dollars and (lack of common-) cents. It's about sense of place, it's about identity, it's about context...and it's about feeling heard.
