Please Tell me it Ain't so!

Saw this in the news:
Students at Edmonton's Northern Alberta Institute of Technology will attend a campus sporting a familiar name soon — the college's south Edmonton location will be called the Ralph Klein Campus.

TO name anything in the human service fields after Klein is, um, how shall I put this, repugnant. THe man started his term as premier by decimating funding to education at all levels. And it can be argued that the system has never recovered--and this in a province that, in comparison to most of the country, was never badly off economically.

Oh well, at least it isn't a hospital. THat would be truly apalling.

  1. Puh-leeeeeze. It would not matter to me if it was a college education better than Harvard - no child of mine would attend anything called "Ralph Klein College." At least not on my dollar.

    The guy is a reprehensible boor.
