Alberta vs B.C.

British Columbia:

Premier Christy Clark of B.C. is jogging with her dog along a nature trail.

A coyote jumps out and attacks the Premier's dog, then bites the Premier.

The Premier starts to intervene but reflects upon the movie "Bambi" and then realizes she should stop because the coyote is only doing what is natural.

She calls animal control. Animal Control captures the coyote and bills the province $200 testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it.

The Premier goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting checked for diseases from the coyote and on getting her bite wound bandaged.

The running trail gets shut down for 6 months while Fish and Game conducts a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is now free of dangerous animals.

The Premier spends $50,000 in provincial funds implementing a "coyote awareness program" for residents of the area.

The provincial legislature spends $2 million to study how to better treat rabies and how to permanently eradicate the disease throughout the world.

The Premier's security agent is fired for not stopping the attack.

The province spends $150,000 to hire and train a new agent with additional special training re: the nature of coyotes.

PETA protests the coyote's relocation and files a $5 million suit against the province.


Premier Alison Redford is jogging with her dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks the dog.

The Premier's security agent shoots the coyote and keeps jogging. The Premier has spent $0.50 on a .45 ACP hollow point cartridge.

The crows eat the dead coyote.

And that, my friends, is why BC is broke and ALBERTA is not.

  1. Yup. That's it exactly! We just need a crow instead of lawyers. Thanks for explaining it.

    Have a lovely Saturday! big hugs.

  2. It sure does sound like Alberta has the right answers. That is one way to do it.
    Have a really nice week end Sandee

  3. The version of this I've heard you had the Governors of California and Texas.

  4. REALLY good one!

    smiles, bee

  5. Yes...I am sure it has relevancy to some of our states

  6. Is this a parable? Is there any truth to it?

  7. Poor coyote that got shot. We have animal cruelty laws against that in Texas.
    We'd have fired the guard and ended it there.

  8. Willy believes Obama may be running one of thos countries!

  9. The fact that Alberta is an oil rich province (like your Texas) also helps.

  10. Interesting parallels...

  11. Governments are amazing in how much money is wasted. Love the comparison. Thanks for the laughs

  12. some people just have to do things the hard way don't they

  13. Barb got it zactly right...too many lawyers! Good one.
