The Tree Hugger
A woman from Vancouver who was a tree hugging NDP'er, an anti-hunter, anti-pipeline environmentalist purchased a piece of timberland near Squamish , BC.
There was a large tree on one of the highest points in the tract. She wanted a good view of the natural splendour of her land so she started to climb the big tree. As she neared the top she encountered a spotted owl that attacked her. In her haste to escape, the woman slid down the tree to the ground and got many splinters in her Hoo-Hoo.
In considerable pain, she hurried to a local ER to see a doctor. She told him she was an environmentalist, an NDP'er and an anti-industry person and how she came to get all the splinters. The doctor listened to her story with great patience and then told her to go wait in the examining room and he would see if he could help her.
She sat and waited three hours before the doctor re-appeared. The angry woman demanded, "What took you so long?"
He smiled and then told her, "Well, I had to get permits from the Environment Canada, the Parks Service and the BC Department of Land Management before I could remove old-growth timber from a 'recreational area' so close to a Waste Treatment Facility.
And I'm sorry, but due to the Provincial Medical cut backs they turned you down.
