kudos for Premier Notley

Have-Not Crisis

 

Alberta reduces the price for its oil

to an excessively low rate,

prodding the Canadian government to declare

that Alberta is in a crisis.

Far from it!

The Albertans are not complaining about the low price.

On the contrary,

they like it,

what with the price of gas that low

and the exports are higher.

That ‘crisis” is actually a blessing for Albertans.

IT, however, presents a crisis of all sorts

for the Canadian government who presently initiated a

a massive financial support for almost everybody in the private sectors.

(coming mostly from the have-not provinces)

The crisis comes when they realize that the usual revenues

coming from the oil profits are drying up.

The excessively low price of oil that is now obtaining excessively reduces

the revenues of the government, and funding this financial support

has instead got the government holding an empty bag.

And all because some grandstanding judge

threw a wrench on the pipeline schedule.

 

(Reducing the price of oil is the most brilliant move that Premier Notley has made)
