Should we get another blog underway? Let me know your thoughts by e-mailing me at johnnyslow@gmail.com.

An Alberta Christmas 2003 

Twere mere weeks before Christmas.

The legislature was finally sitting,

Except for our Premier who

Appeared to be missing.

As usual, questions were asked,

But no answers were given.

Albertans were in turmoil.

To distraction, they’d been driven.

Ever since the declaration

Of the World of Ralph,

Democracy had been relegated

To gathering dust on a shelf.

Promises had been made.

Band-aid solutions spoken.

Seniors’ long-term rents had risen;

Their Christmas spirit broken.

While pleading for help,

They were told don’t disrupt.

My answer to all problems

Is “shoot, shovel and shut up!”

Martha and Henry lost their house.

Now they’re living on the street.

The Alberta Advantage is a myth,

When you can’t afford insurance, electricity or heat!
