Am I Dreaming


robertghizI was quite sure I woke up at the usual time this morning, had my usual coffee and read my usual newspaper. However, what I read in the paper caused me to think I was still asleep and dreaming. Perhaps I had followed Alice  through the looking glass, maybe I was in the town where the Grinch stole Christmas, could I be in Lulu Land? Had the government added magic mushrooms to my diet? nothing seemed real. Yet there in bold print in the paper was a statement that MLA’s are getting another raise! Was this decided because of the great job there are doing? maybe because they have managed to reopen the Souris fish plant, were about to elect a new leader, or was it just deserved???

It surely couldn’t be because they lost over 8 million because someone was stupid enough not to have the loan guaranteed to Ocean Choice? Could it be the brilliant plan to recover most of the 8 million from wayward Islanders owing outstanding traffic violations. Apparently Islanders owe over 7 million in parking-speeding fines etc. This is almost as strange as my dream, why now would they decide to press for payment? should they not have been doing this when the fines were first imposed. Does it make sense that they should allow these outstanding fines to reach such a large sum before doing anything about it?? Was my body just drifting through the large fluffy clouds was I still dreaming or was this real. Then I heard a familiar voice speaking through the clouds and telling of Anne of Green Gables. Robert Ghiz our fictional premier was telling me we must do a better job of marketing Anne. In case you are not in my dream, Anne is also a fictional character  but the difference here is the fictional premier gets paid, Anne doesn’t. I take a sip of my coffee, shake my head and pinch myself Ouch!!! I’m not dreaming after all, I’m not with Alice or the Grinch not in Lulu land. I’m awake and this is just another day of living on Prince Edward Island under a lackluster Liberal Government. Merry Christmas Everyone and please pay those parking tickets, your MLA’s need your money

God Bless and keep reading
