I can't help but wonder what right Klein has to enact such a policy? Does he have a mandate? Do the people of Alberta have recourse under the Canada Health Act?

Martin challenges Klein to release health plan and Harper to judge it
ST. CATHARINES, Ont. (CP) - Paul Martin has challenged his main rival and the premier of Alberta to lay their cards on the table about potential changes to medicare before the federal election.
The Liberal leader resumed his attack on Friday on Alberta Premier Ralph Klein and Conservative Leader Stephen Harper, whom he has slagged as "silent partners" in a plot to strip medicare.
