Welcome Aboard General Pinochet 

Premier Ralph Klein announced today that the Alberta Government has retained the services of Chilean General Augusto Pinochet Ugarte. The General will be working in the Premier's Public Affairs Bureau and will be advising the Premier on "difficult" communication issues. His first task is rumoured to be the selling of the Auto Insurance package expected out in about six weeks. He is well-known in his native Chile for persuading citizens to see his side of an issue.

Interviewed by phone from his home in Santiago, he said he was thrilled to working with a government that took fighting Communists seriously and that he was looking forward to sharing "war stories" with Steve West.

Klein has been a great admirer of the General ever since in spent an "all-nighter" doing a term paper on Chile for a course he was taking at Athabasca University. See related Globe & Mail Story If you would like to read his paper, click here.

The General was hired after an extensive candidate search on the Dictator for Hire website.
