(SNN) Rachel Notley, premier of Alberta’s brand new socialist government (!) has announced they will be enacting a law making it illegal for Albertans to receive over a million dollars a year including salary, stocks and bonuses. 

Some Exemptions

Despite Intense lobbying from the energy sector, there will be few who don’t fall under the new law. According to a trial balloon Notley floated in the Legislature wading pool during the new “Daily 420 Break“ , when the legislature is sitting , the only exemptions will be the two most important contributors to society; doctors and hockey players. The exemption will not extend to hockey team owners, however.

Exodus of Millionaires Expected, Welcomed

“We understand this policy may force the wealthy to relocate to other provinces but we’re okay with that,” grinned Notley. “This will flatten out the disparity between rich and poor in this province very quickly. We won’t be satisfied until we have a utopia where we have from each according to their ability and to each according to their need.”

Policy Influencer

When asked by reporters if Notley was influenced by Marx, she responded, “I really liked Groucho but I can’t stand Harpo.”
