Leave it to The Beaverton.
The satire website and television newcomer recently released a farcical video ribbing Alberta premier Rachel Notley.
They take aim at those people who like to blame Notley for every one of Alberta's woes — but the tone is almost a little too accurate.
"Since taking power in 2015 NDP premier Rachel Notley has, according to conservative uncles everywhere, been a disaster for Alberta," the video begins.
It then goes on to blame Notley for setting the Fort McMurray wildfires "in order to decimate the oil industry" — which, unbelievably, is something that people actually accused her of at the time.

Several "Albertans" list off other reasons why they believe Notley should "resign in disgrace," including:
- Making it illegal for citizens to dig transcontinental pipelines,
- Drinking all the milk in the house,
- Breaking into people's trash cans and spreading garbage all over their lawns,
- Convincing a dog to eat some of its own poop.
Ridiculous? Absolutely. But not an inaccurate depiction of some people's tendency to #BlameNotley for pretty much everything.
