Bad Bear 

Premier Ralph Klein spoke with one of his kindred spirits today - or so he thought. See Toronto Star Story.

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger phoned Premier Klein yesterday to place a wager on the Calgary-San Jose National Hockey League playoff series and each agreed to put up $1,000 each on the outcome of the best-of-seven semi-final.

Schwarzenegger and Klein have long shared a similar approach to governing their citizens. See picture.

Klein's press secretary, Marisa Etmanski said Klein thought talking to Schwarzenegger, an actor best known for his roles in the Terminator movies before he became governor, was "cool."

Time to invest in Call Display Marisa.

Seems the problem was, it wasn't Arnold on the other end of the line. It was someone from "The Bear" radio station. A phone call to "The Bear" this afternoon yielded a telephone receptionist who said she was told by station management she didn't know anything about this.

The Premier can't wait to get on one of those "Not No Smoking" government aircraft and take a long trip somewhere - anywhere. The Tory Party will gladly pay to have him go.
