Today we hear that popular former Alberta Premier Ralph Klein is seriously ill. He has COPD (emphysema) which is lung disease that has no cure so far.
He was mayor of Calgary in when he hosted the 1988 Winter Olympics and did a great job at that as a matter of fact.
He was a very approachable premier who wasn't afraid to hang out with regular Albertans. He's a straight shooter and not afraid to tell you like it is. His greatest accomplishment was in his first term where he took on an economy which had been left devastated by Trudeau's NEP and other factors. We had a debt and deficit that he successfully was able to turn around. He stood up for Alberta against the minions in Ottawa. Some days when Ed Stelmach and Co. screw up I pine for the old Klein days.
Now that he's ill the least we can do is pray for him and stand behind him as he battles this horrible disease.
God's speed and I pray that God will see fit to heal you of this. There are many who are in your corner and support you. Don't forget that God still does perform miracles.
