I was shocked and disgusted to read your feature story wherein the Advocate devoted almost one half of Page A2 March 30 to very negative comments about the late Premier Ralph Klein.
While this news release was credited to The Canadian Press (an acknowledged left-wing propaganda machine), the Advocate editorial staff should have shown more class than to publish such derogatory dribble, one day after Ralph’s death.
This blatant lack of respect for Mr. Klein’s family, friends and colleagues is an inexcusable example of the left-wing ideology of the Advocate editorial staff.
I remember the glowing tributes the Advocate paid to the late Jack Layton for several editions after his death. I don’t recall seeing anything negative printed about him.
Wake up, Advocate editors, and realize that Central Alberta is not, and probably never will be, a socialist hotbed.
I am probably not the only reader who was offended by your obvious lack of respect for one of Canada’s great leaders.
