CALGARY, March 29, 2013 /CNW/ - Tsuu T'ina Nation Chief and Council were
saddened today to learn of the passing of former Premier Ralph Klein.
"On behalf of our Nation members we share in the feeling of loss as our
Nation and all Albertans lose a good friend," offered Chief Roy
He added, "Our Nation's relationship with former Premier Klein began
during his tenure as Mayor and continued during his time as Premier.
Premier Klein understood the challenges that many First Nations faced
and was willing to work with us. Notably he helped our Nation build
our economic capacity through our involvement in the gaming industry
and we will always remember that."
"Ralph had a real common touch regardless of the offices that he held,
and you always felt that he was listening to you. I personally have
fond memories of Ralph, and my Council colleagues and I will be
thinking of Colleen Klein, the family and their close friends. We know
the Creator will be watching over Ralph as he undertakes his final
journey," concluded Chief Whitney.
