Albertans were awed when the miracle on the prairies apparently followed an Alberta politician clear across the world. Nitin Gadkari, Minister of Road Transport & Highways, Shipping and Water Resources, River Development & Ganga Rejuvenation with the Government of India announced he met with an unknown Minister who, curiously, called himself Jason Kenney.
The elected politician, who is a Leader of the Official Opposition but not a member of government, and not a Minister in Alberta or Canada, discussed “mutual cooperation in infrastructure” with an actual Minister, Nitin Gadkari, in India yesterday.
When asked for comment, Mr. Kenney, who is not a Minister, announced he would outsource infrastructure jobs to India on behalf of the ten thousand Albertans who elected him.
“If I was a Minister of anything, I would be looking to outsource jobs; my record with the Temporary Foreign Worker Program helped many Albertan companies” Kenney stated proudly.
The Temporary Foreign Worker Program was a big hit, especially in Alberta. Not one conservative supporter in Alberta ever, ever, ever complained about it. It was one of the many jewels in Jason Kenney’s crown when he was a Member of Parliament and actually part of Government.
“I went to India to meet with a Minister of Shipping and Water Resources,” he told us, “because even though Alberta has no coast, we do have water”.
“And infrastructure” Kenney added, “Alberta has infrastructure too.”
Sandra Jansen, Alberta’s Minister of Infrastructure, wished Kenney a Bon Voyage and looked forward to hearing what he learned about Alberta’s infrastructure needs from the Minister in India.
In response, Kenney announced he would continue to ignore actual representatives of the current Government and keep all of his plans for Alberta secret unless he was elected Premier.
Satirical. I hope.
