RALPH KLEIN

How Should We <em>Really</em> Remember Ralph Klein?

No matter how rude or insulting Klein became, he also was a darling of the mainstream media. When a drunken Premier berated poor unemployed men at midnight at a homeless shelter, telling them to get jobs and throwing money at them, he was forgiven by media and right-wingers because, well, it was Ralph and that's just the way he was. However, the homeless shelter incident is a clear sign of how the establishment and its' media viewed the plight of the poor with indifference.
