Today’s Media Scout from Maisonneuve has an excellent summary of the other Western Standard story Albertans are talking about. The one where columnist Ric Dolphin quotes an unattributed source — a friend of Ralph Klein’s — making disparaging, racist remarks about Klein’s wife. The quote, one of two anonymous comments, help Dolphin paint a picture of Colleen Klein as a machiavellian social climber whose attachment to the finer points of public life are the real reason Ralph won’t leave.
Garbage. And certainly a contributing factor in advertisers and distributors decisions to withdraw support for the magazine. Protests from the Metis community are likely to give Levant more of what he wants: media attention. Let’s hope readers vote with their feet.
