Earlier today, a friend of mine forwarded the following email to me. Unfortunately, no author is credited and I could not find out who wrote it even though I’ve searched. If you know who wrote this please let me know because I’d like to credit them and give them a big hug! A perfect piece of parody and Canadian political commentary using the great Canadian sport, Hockey. It’s wonderful!

If you don’t know what’s going on in Canadian politics right now, no matter where you’re from you should get caught up. It’s one of the most bizarre political stories I’ve ever heard. For those of you who know what’s going on, enjoy this.

NHL Coalition The Detroit Redwings technically won the 2008 Stanley Cup, but the Pittsburgh Penguins, Philadelphia Flyers and Dallas Stars have formed a coalition demanding a three way ownership of the league title. Rational for their decision revolves around their total combined scoring in the 2008 Semi-Finals, their total share of season ticket holders versus the Detroit Redwings and their horror at discovering the Detroit Redwings are using a more cost effective and efficient but non-union made Silver polish to keep the Stanley Cup gleaming.

The three teams are being assisted in their bid to overturn the traditional results by members of the Quebec Hockey League who have no real interest in the success of the NHL in general but sense an opportunity to demand Zambonis and other critical equipment be manufactured in Quebec. Player representatives, Team Owners and Nike are expected to submit their proposals to Don Cherry in the next few days. Fans and ticket holders are neither being asked or allowed a voice in the final decision.

    Let me see if I have this all straight.
    The NDP had already hatched a plan for a bloodless coup d’etat prior to the economic statement by Mr. Flaherty.

    It apparently didn’t matter that Canadians just voted and elected Mr. Harper. Mr. Layton doesn’t care that we just had a $300 million election.

    Mr. Dion announced his intention to step down, but the coup will put him into the Prime Minister’s office even though he got the fewest votes of any Liberal since Confederation.

    The Bloc Quebecois holds the balance of power and the key to government stability. Hang on, do I have this right? Mr. Duceppe is the defacto Prime Minister in this game of political monopoly?

    So, to recap:
    Mr. Harper won, but really lost the election. Mr. Layton lost, but actually won. Mr. Dion quit but is going to be Prime Minister. And Mr. Duceppe is laughing his backside off because he is the one who is really in charge of the stability of Canadian government while being committed breaking up the country.

    Hmmm. I just wanted to make sure I understood all of it. Welcome to our new banana republic – land of the political wing-nuts.
