Secede? Cascadia Project
About the Cascadia Porject:
Cascadia is the proposed name for the independent state that would be formed by British Columbia, Washington and Oregon, were these states and province ever to successfully secede from their federal governments in Ottawa and Washington D.C. It is also a unique coastal-mountain bioregion between San Francisco and the Alaskan panhandle in which the dominant culture is one of respect and honor for the environment and a strong tradition of democracy and social justice.
In general, the area in and around the Cascadia region is more commonly referred to as the Pacific Northwest.
