Good jobs for Rachel Notley

Rebel Staff

Coming out of Alberta’s campaign season, Rachel Notley, will need to wear a lot of hats if she wants the NDP to have any chance of being successful in the province. 

What jobs can you find for the new Premier?

Ms. Notley’s top job is to lead Albertans out of their financial crisis without the NDP party doing a “Bob Rae” to another Canadian province.


Next on Rachel’s priorities is babysitting all of her new MLAs.  Which she quickly learned would be difficult when she kicked 20-year-old, Deborah Drever, to the curb over a controversial Instagram photo.

Once she finally is able to get down to work, she’ll have to clean up the mess left behind by Jim Prentice and Alison Redford.
Tax collector

To clean up the mess, Ms. Notley will likely claim that she’ll need to raise taxes on Albertans including a woeful Carbon Tax.

Maybe she’ll take a look at how fellow Leftist, President Obama, runs things south of the border.

At the end of the day, Notley will spend most of her energy keeping the rookie MLAs in line.  Her legion of students has little to no political experience and Ms. Notley will need to start sending her MLAs to the Principal’s Office.  Unless she plans on dwindling her majority by expelling one young, inexperienced, delinquent MLA at a time.

She will be gone in four years. Alberta will recover with the Wild Rose Party in power …. maybe …. Alberta PC party is a corrupt and now dead entity that we hope will not try to come back as a right wing zombie.

Time, methinks, to get the email address of the Alberta PC party and tell them what they need to do to fix this situation. Firstly, the Alberta PCs need new leadership (none of the “old guard”). Secondly, this leader needs to have the best of Alberta in the forefront of his/her mind, and not his/her own agenda. We are going to need another Klein. If the public sector unions were crying foul at Prentice’s budget, they’re definitely not going to like the necessary hack-and-slash that will be required after four years of Notley. (Middle and Upper Management should get the most severest trimming… I hope…) And then all the financial handouts that we can expect Notley to give (“infrastructure”, “the Arts”, and so forth) will also have to go. We think Prentice’s budget was a financial fiasco? Wait for four years, my fellow Albertans, just wait. You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

It’s the tax collector part that has me the most worried of the “jobs” mentioned here. The other is their anti-oil bias. That will cost Alberta the most in lost revenue and lost jobs, and cost Canada is lost provincial equalization payments, and cot Ottawa in lost tax revenue. Loss all the way around. I think I am going to be depressed for 4 years.

I think this your second satire (?) but they are enjoyable in a serious every thing kind of world. :)
