You really don't follow along do you. I have always said Ralph was a great premier for Alberta. I voted for him as a matter of Fact. I haven't voted conservative since he left though. That said, I see no reason to give him credit for things that he had nothing to do with. It was Lougheed that made the feds back down and revise the NEP into something Alberta could live with. Ralph had absolutely nothing to do with it. You giving Ralph credit for it takes away from the great job that Lougheed did.

You have a link I presume? Because I could say your a child molester but without proof it means nothing but it still makes you look bad.

Proof about Klein performing the marriage ceremony for his daughter where polygamy was a problem?

Lougheed was great,I spent last summer working in a park named after him.
Ralph kept the easterners at bay after Lougheed left,Not many Easterner politicians wanted to **** with us then.

refined product.
Alberta can boast all it wants and protest but before Jed Clampett discovered crude
south of Edmonton the rest of the country carried that Province on its back. How quick
some forget. Yes Alberta has paid more than its share since then but that is the price
of being Canadian, BC has paid a lot too and I don't have a problem with that at all.
I suppose its because I have always been somewhat of an economic nationalist.
Yes I support a Canada first policy in exports, and all natural resources.

I'm sure all of Alberta is looking forward to that pipe running west so as to open up the Asian markets. After that, we've got the northern shipping channel for controlling/managing oil markets. Seems to me that Canada is in an excellent position ... but I agree that all that oil should be refined at home ... if it can be refined without any environmental consequence. Otherwise, let it be refined elsewhere, but keep the price up.

Whom Albertans elected 3 times from '85 to '92.

Are Albertans in the habit of reelecting idiots over and over again?

No,you really have no idea how much oil and gas we have and it needs to go somewhere so peeps like you with mutual funds can make their 10%. return on their mutuals.

Are you thinking that the world will run out of oil and no one will know what to do?

I prefer stock brokers.

Of course not! He was Ralph Klein ... the guy with a guick wit, a dry humour and a lot of colourful stories. Performing a polygamous ceremony for his daughter was just one more colourful story.

Well if you have mutual funds your an investor in the oilsands,thank us Albertans later for developing this resource so the rest of Canada can retire with wealth.

If he never got charged why did you post it then?

If the rest of the country can retire on Alberta's wealth then out with the foodbanks! Let them eat bread.

Why did I post the point about Ralph Klein's polygamous wedding performance in a thread about why he may not deserve the Order of Canada? Seriuosly?

If it wasent for the oilsands employing easterners right now Canada would be in dire straits,I sure as hell dont see any other provinces then Saskatchewan trying to better this country.Do you?

Sorry but if you want cash then you better move because the transfer payments are going to die out soon.

I disagree.

I'm not sure about whether Ralph Klein should receive the Order of Canada. If it's standard procedure to give the award to former Premiers, then I have to wonder why it's taken so long for the conversation to start. If the decision today is that he does not merit the award ... then so be it. He has a checkered history and there's no point in devaluing the award by issuing it to everyone, regardless of track record.

Do you believe that Alberta will run out of oil?

Doesn't oil have something to do with dinosaur bones and stuff trapped between the layers? When it's gone, I suppose it's gone. Maybe it would be a good time to get into engineering and design that electric car, turn salt water into drinking water, or heat your home with sunlight.

All these? I only saw Adrienne coming up with something about his daughter marrying someone that was already married. What other allegations fall into "all these"?

I provided you with a history of Canada book reference. If that's not good enough, then nothing is ... meaning you don't want to believe it because it doesn't sit well with you. He wasn't charged, as far as I know, but maybe he was. You'll have to check the legal records in Southern Alberta (where the ceremony was held). If he was charged, it was dealt with quickly ... but who cares. It happened.

Have you met Ralph Klein? I know he likes fishing along the Bow and hanging out at the Calgarian. That's what he did before he became Mayor. Where did you meet him?
