Notley eyeing premier’s office again a joke: writer

Writer had to check to see if date was April 1st

Dear editor,

So on Dec. 20 I overheard laughter and not just any laughter, it was “spilling your gust” type laughter and, man, was it ever loud.

My sister Tanna texted me a few minutes later, she’s from Westerose, her husband Dan just heard that Notley plans to run for the premier’s seat in 2023 and he was so surprised that he couldn’t help but laugh.

I must agree with him. Righteous Notley actually thinks that she’ll win the race as premier of Alberta.

I suppose there are a few gullible weaklings who’ll vote for her. Actually, I know a lady here in Alberta that thinks Jason Kenney is an angel from hell, so Notley is guaranteed at least one vote.

Actually, I went and checked my calendar to make sure it wasn’t April 1; since it wasn’t, maybe she’s serious.

It sure will be a very cold day in Mexico if she wins!

Oh well. Time will tell.

Happy New Year everyone!

Larry Hiebert, Wetaskiwin
