Of all the hundreds of thousands of dollars awarded in federal grants to folk festivals around the country this year, the Edmonton Folk Festival received exactly... ZERO... NADA... ZILTCH....
"Why?" everyone around here is wondering.
Could it be that the Edmonton Folk Festival is held in the federal constituency of Strathcona?
Ring a bell? Strathcona is the only federal riding that did not go Conservative in the last election. It went to the 'lefty' environmentalist NDP, Linda Duncan.
This oughta teach them sweater-wearing, folk-music-listening, tree-hugging hippies they can't get away with exercising their democratic right to vote... well, at least to vote for someone other than the Conservative.
... or maybe I'm just imagining it all.
I'm not sayin'.
