Ralph Klein has gone and it is time to retire Ralph's World. Thanks to all of you who have supported this venture by contributing material and through your comments. It has been fun.

Should we get another blog underway? Let me know your thoughts by e-mailing me at johnnyslow@gmail.com.

Mr. Marky and the Wheat Board 

Right-wing Tory MLA Marky Hlady gained the support of King Ralph in his bid to destroy the Canadian Wheat Board. Hlady's private member's bill would allow farmers to bypass the Canadian Wheat Board when selling their crops. (CBC Edmonton)

It is a very interesting battle to come from an MLA who represents a very urban downtown Calgary riding. Hlady, who is the MLA for Calgary Mountain View, has decided to use his bill to bash Ottawa and the Wheat Board, rather than help those who voted for him.

Calgary, like many other urban centres across Canada, is facing many problems such as poverty, drugs, gang problems, and not to mention a major shortage of hospital beds.

The voters of Calgary Mountain View would probably be better served if Mr. Marky left this issue to the over-weight and underworked Tory Rural Caucus.
