Good To The Very Last Droplet by Robert J. Wheeler

What if, in the future, after all countries have pumped their oil wells dry, Canada has the last of the world’s oil in its sand? It’s a hundred years into the future, when Alberta’s oil sand reserve has become an overwhelming financial boon to Canadians. Add an older, red-neck Newfoundlander prime minister, Sylvia, and her young male sub prime minister, Alfred, and laughter flows faster than oil. However, it isn’t a colossal benefit to the Country due one significant challenge -- The International Democratic Imperative Oil Treaty also known as IDIOT. IDIOT limits Canada’s oil distribution to every nation. Can Sylvia and Alfred stand up to more powerful nations who are desperate for more than their fare share of oil? Can Canada resist foreign pressure and uphold the treaty?

Keywords: funny, Canadian, futuristic, Alberta, oil, prime minister
