Alberta Moves Ahead On Private Health Care Bill

Posted on Friday, January 27 at 10:48 by whelan costen
The province's decision to finally adopt the controversial proposals comes just as a Conservative prime minister from Alberta, Stephen Harper, is about to take power, albeit with a minority government after Monday's federal election. Klein said it's good to have a government from the West at such a time, but he stressed the timing of Alberta moving on the issue is coincidental. The health reforms have been in the works for a long time and Alberta would be proceeding regardless of who came into power in Ottawa, he said. The premier said he spoke to Harper about the province's decision, and would only say the two leaders agreed to "keep the lines of communication open." http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/story/CTVNews/20060126/alberta_private_healthcare_060126/20060127?hub=Canada [Proofreader's note: this article was edited for spelling and typos on January 27, 2006]
