I'm Opening A Bar In Calgary!

When Alberta elected the NDP by mistake last month, it opened the door for a whole bunch of new policies to be tried.

One of them is a minimum guaranteed income, or Mincome.  Everybody would get a guaranteed annual $20,000 to $30,000.  Not bad!

Calgary's mayor, Naheed Nensh, is volunteering his city to pilot test this experiment.

Well, I think Gordon Lightfoot is going to get a bump up in his royalty cheques, as soon every grifter in Canada will be singing Alberta Bound and taking the next Greyhound west.

So with 20 to 30 grand in your pockets, you get yourself a nice apartment, some cowboy boots and a string tie.

But like any self respecting grifter knows, you need something to do all day.

Welcome to Jimmy's Bar & Grill!

More bar than grill, I suspect, unless you can grill pickled eggs.

I'm sensing a whole new business climate out there.

Move over Oil, there's a new liquid in town.
