It's just swell that you are doing fine in Southern Alberta.
Good for you.
Fact is, I am doing OK as well.
But that's just me.
And you, I guess.
Perhaps others are not fairing as well?
The Baker Hughes rig count is in the toilet.
Unemployment in Alberta continues to ramp up.
Foreclosures and bankruptcies in Alberta are still increasing.
Ed (the Turnip)Stelmach is burning through Alberta's rainy day fund to the tune of 9 Billion a year.
Next year Alberta will have cooked through its savings and gone into a full blown deficit.
Went for drinks with one of my buddies the other day.
Drilling manager at one of the bigger O&G outfits.
He says he has authorized the drilling of fewer wells this year than he usually does in an average month.
But he is cool about it all.
The service companies sales rep's are buzzing around him like dieing flies.
And he is getting in 18 holes every second day.
Bored out of his mind.
So it's all good for him.
And I guess me and you Cannuck.
My point is, perhaps a few other folks are having a tough time.
If you haven't seen them, I have.
