Society Notes from The Calgary Eye Opener

Lots of Money - Few Women

Lord Albert McGonigle-Buzzard-Cholomondeley - rancher, mutual fund chief, venture capitalist, technocrat, inventor (of world’s first perpetual motion engine), auditor, publisher of the Calgary Eye Opener, patriarch of Western Canada's most noble family.
Ralph Klein - porky press agent for Calgary’s Cancer Society who became a television reporter for CFCN, then became Calgary’s mayor, then became Alberta’s Minister of the Environment, and then became Alberta’s Premier. He is a former close buddy of John Barleycorn. He is the Chauncy Gardiner story come true. He is considered Alberta’s Great Communicator. He is broke. A decent man when the chips are down.
Murray Edwards - paunchy - big wonder-kid (44) financier – Calgary’s answer to J.P. Morgan.
Peter Lougheed - tiny former premier with a lot of focus, not much imagination who blew away much of Alberta’s wealth during boom times but stopped the Federal (Central Canadian) Government’s attempted colonization of the Province.
J.R. Shaw - physically the ugliest man in Alberta, he is the second generation patriarch and boss of the Shaw Communications Monopoly which runs competitionless cable TV in Alberta and other parts of Canada.
Jim Grey - compact, gutsy, successful Community LEADER and Oilman (a founder of Canadian Hunter Exploration). Devout Mormon. Fought the good fight against gambling addiction, for women’s shelters and education of the disabled.
Sir Ronald Southern - the world’s greatest lobbyist. In the 80s Sir Ron captured the Canadian Utilities monopoly. Despite the best efforts of Canadian Utilities’ lawyers, Ron has been unable to secure an English knighthood.
Ron Mannix - second generation secretive and limited heir to a construction empire.
David O'Brien – the house lawyer who took over and successfully ran the Canadian Pacific Railway and all its subsidiaries.
Al Markin - Murray Edwards’ poetic subordinate who captained Canadian Natural Resources from bankruptcy to 6 billion dollars in value. Recently hired high-priced pit-bull improbability expert lawyer Ron (“Bow-Wow”) Foster, Q.C. to fight with Al’s ex-wife over custody of Al’s dog, Molly. Bow-Wow typically placed a value of $1,000,000 on Molly. Meanwhile, millions starve in Africa.
Bud McCaig - transportation mogul, lobbyist and would-be environmentalist (Bovar). The Alberta taxpayer usually pays for the many mistakes Bud makes in the environmental area.
Ron Greene - oil explorer (Renaissance Energy), one of the founders of Calgary’s WestJet Airlines, polo player.
Ed McNally - founder and CEO of Big Rock Brewery.
Pat Nelson (Black) - highly limited, bullygirl cabinet minister.
Preston Manning - Bible thumping founder of the Reform Party (morphed into the Canadian Alliance, then into the Conservative Party of Canada). Preston was deposed by the Christian Taliban in the year of our Lord 2000.
