Ralph Klein, Former Alberta Premier, Moving To Continuing Care Facility


CALGARY - Former Alberta premier Ralph Klein will be moving into a continuing care facility once he is released from a Calgary hospital.

Alberta Health Services says Klein has been under treatment at the Rockyview General Hospital for a previously diagnosed respiratory condition.

It's hoped he will be able to return home after a transition period in continuing care.

Klein, who also has dementia, was premier from 1992 until 2006.
