Last thoughts on Ralph Klein
I thought the prime minister gave an excellent speech in memoriam for Ralph. http://o.canada.com/2013/04/05/prime-minister-stephen-harpers-remarks-at-ralph-klein-memorial/ . BUT I am still right to ask: Did Martha and Henry completely pay off their mortgage before buying school supplies, music lessons and sports equipment for their kids? Completely eliminating the debt was an ideological self-indulgence paid for with revenue from non-renewable resources. All it did was create an infrastructure deficit in place of the fiscal one, increasing our unhealthy dependence upon resource revenue in the process.
