second phase of alberta's innovative long-term savings strategy to be unveiled.

PC Finance Minister Iris Evans may be traveling to Norway to learn how to save money, but the real attention should be paid to the activities of Treasury Secretary Lloyd Snelgrove, who is rumoured to be preparing the second phase of Alberta's new innovative long-term savings strategy to be executed upon Evans' return at the end of January.

The key principle of the strategy revolves around the development of a flux-capacitor, which once installed into a proper vehicle and reaches a speed of 88 miles per hour (142 km/h), will transport Evans back to November 5, 1955.

Upon arriving in 1955, Evans will intercept young Ralph Klein at the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance and attempt to convince him that properly saving for Alberta's future would be vitally important during his time as Premier. If Evans is successful, this will begin to cause what Doc Brown describes as a paradox that would cause Alberta's financial and infrastructure problems to disappear from existence (but if she's not careful, and does not bring any extra plutonium, Evans will have to find the 1955 version of Lloyd Snelgrove to help her return to 2009).

Yes, but who will convince Lloyd Snelgrove of the importance of saving?

Paris Hilton of course.

Hard to take seriously your writing when you seem to think everything is a joke. You can't have it both ways Davey boy. Your site is turning into a joke. Good for you.

Lighten up, Jeff. A little intentional humour every now and then is good for the soul (plus, it's fun to write, which is really what this blog is about).

I hope you're attending Law Show this year if you enjoy Back to the Future references Dave.

I don't think the flux capacitor is mentioned enough when it comes to political discourse.... Or hover boards. Imagine what the cabinet could do with hover boards?

Maybe the Klein crew took Doc's words at the end of the second film to heart:

"Roads? Where we're going we don't need roads."

(Or hospitals, etcetera.)

Oops — I meant the end of the first film.

Davey C I don't read this blog very often because of my hatred of you (to all literal readers, that's a joke) but that my friend was hilarious.

Mmmm Alberto you do have style said...

So at the end of the day, or dance, you're not in favour of Alberta saving more?
Why must you turn my office into a house of lies?

This post epitomizes everything that's wrong with petty partisan politics. David, you should be ashamed of yourself.
