"I've Had Enough of This Crap" - says Klein 

"I've had enough of this crap" Ralph Himself muttered as he ran from reporters at a newsconference yesterday regarding the BSE crisis in our Province. See news stories by clicking here and here and a previous Ralph's World posting here. You can even watch Ralph courtesy of CTV by clicking here.

Read on.

"Providing a fair marketplace for both buyers and sellers is a priority for Government Services. Consumer Services contributes to this goal by investigating consumer complaints, enforcing consumer protection legislation, licensing and bonding regulated businesses, informing consumers of their rights and responsibilities, and providing an appropriate regulatory framework for consumers and business."

The above quote is from the Alberta Government website. It states what the Alberta Government Consumer Services Branch professes to do. Ralph refuses to allow an investigation into whether our tax dollars for BSE support of the cattle producers has instead flowed to the bottom line of meat packers Cargill and Tyson. He says it is up to the Feds to investigate that. Hmmmm. Would not this investigation come under the professed aim of "Providing a fair marketplace for both buyers and sellers?". Guess Ralph has a different concept of fair marketplace than his PR folks have. They really should coordinate on things like this.

Speaking of investigations, here's something I would like to see investigated.

Has any reporter headed down to the Elections Alberta office at Suite 100, 11510 Kingsway Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta, T5G 2Y5, Canada to see what contributions Cargill and Tyson made to the Alberta Progressive Conservative Party?

Ralph's says he's had enough of this crap. This crap is reporters daring to question Ralph Himself about where taxpayer money goes in this Province.

I've had enough of this crap too. Klein Krap.
