Question Period becoming PC Playroom 

Last Monday, I attended the opening question period of the new session of the Legislature, and I can honestly say that I am extremely disappointed at the lack of respect that the Klein Government has for this democratic institution.

Not only is Klein leaving after the first day of the session to jaunt around London, but he also believes that he should not have to answer “stupid questions” from the Opposition concerning hard hitting issues such as education funding, deregulation, and car insurance.

Question Period, with all of the hooting, hollering, barking, and laughing coming from Tory MLA’s, makes the Legislature look more like the PC playroom. All they need now are a couple of big screen TV’s, and some air hockey and foosball tables. They could lie back in their leather recliners and crack open a few bruskies, replace the Pages with Waitresses from Hooters, and there they go.

And since there is “no crisis in education” as Klein so articulately stated, they will have no problem funding this truly Toryesque venture.

It’s time to bring respect back into Alberta’s Legislature. It’s time for a change.
