To Ralph Klein - "That's Called Assault!!!!" - RESIGN

If you take out your magnifying glass, you may find a story that the standard press and media is somewhat playing down today. Yesterday, during Question Period in the Alberta Legislature, Tory Premier Ralph Klein had a temper tantrum. A Liberal MLA had handed a booklet on health care to a young female 17 year old Page. She took it across the floor and handed to the Premier. He threw it back at her and it struck her!

Now remember, this is the same Premier Ralph Klein who had his driver take him to a homeless shelter one night a few years ago. An obviously intoxicated Premier Klein berated the homeless for being poor! He reportedly took some money out of his wallet and began to throw money at them. Many of us are well aware the right wingers generally blame the poor for their poverty but this was unforgivable. The day after the money throwing incident,. thru the trickery of communications professionals, Klein admited to a drinking problem and apologized to all concerned. Poor Ralph - many felt sorry for him.

However, I believe the sentiment should more accurately be, 'Shame on Ralph'.

So now we have another episode - and in this case it is an older man using violence on a very young woman. It is time for Ralph Klein to go.

I tip my hat to Alberta MLA Brian Mason who said after yesterdays incident, "If one thing exemplifies the degree to which he has become out of control - indeed, almost unstable, it was that performance today" (Quote is from the Edmonton Journal, March 2, 2006).

Mr. Premier. RESIGN!!!! If you want to tell Ralph yourself, email him at : premier@gov.ab.ca
