For those who didn't catch the story, it turns out Ralph Klein billed Alberta taxpayers for his flight to speak at the PC leadership convention.
On Dec. 2, the plane flew without any passengers from Edmonton to Calgary just after 4 p.m., picked up Klein, his wife Colleen, and Klein's top staffer in Calgary, Rich Jones, as well as a government security officer. It then returned to Edmonton.
The Kleins appeared on stage after the leadership vote results were announced and he gave his 11-word thank-you speech: "Thank you all for your support over the years. Thank you."
The four then boarded the same plane in Edmonton at 1:22 a.m., arriving in Calgary at 2:03 a.m. The plane returned to Edmonton, again carrying no passengers.
I'd be very curious what important government business Ralph attended to during his six yours on a Saturday night in Edmonton...
