With elections less than a month away in the province of Alberta, political placards are sprouting faster than crocuses.
“Communism coming soon,” I read on one, coincidentally as I was walking to the grocery cooperative, and I thought: “Well, that should be exciting.”
On the way back, giving it a second look, I saw that I had misread the message. Rather than social change, it promised yet more “condominiums coming soon”. How disappointing.
By the way: don’t worry, comrades, I am not really a communist.
