This was a post from June 2012, I thought it might be a gentle reminder of yesteryear. However, keep in mind many of the original Merry Men are still lurking among the Liberal election posters.
Recently in the Guardian newspaper our finance Minister likened himself to Robin Hood. A real stretch of the bow string me thinks!!! However, Minister Sheridan’s recent comments have inspired another great Island story on a par with Anne of Green Gables.
Once upon a time there was this merry scary band of outlaws, they lived deep within the the city. Their leader was the evil sheriff Ghiz of Nott(listen)ingham. Robber Hood Sheridan was his right hand man. He was busy planning a new way to rob the poor and give to the rich. Meanwhile the resident camp faith giver Friar Tuck McKinley was attending another last supper at tax payers expense. The merry scary band knew the locals were restless and may at any minute take to the streets waving dangerous banners and flags. However the merry scary band were not worried, Little John Vessey had a plan B, he would build a fast escape route through Bonshaw to Borden where they could safely hide out in the hills until things cooled down. Nevertheless the merry scary band were a merry lot, they had lots of money and credit cards and if the locals cast them out, they had rich government pensions to see them through. The merry scary band had nothing to worry about, they would just live happily ever after.
Here in modern day Charlottetown Forest this tale of yore carries on and on and on. Different Sheriff and a few different Merry Men but everything else in the forest will remain the same. So when you go to vote be sure you can see the trees in the forest.
God Bless and keep reading
