At a roast in his honour Premier Ralph Klein made a remark about Belinda Stronach: “I don’t think she ever had a Conservative bone in her body. Well except for one … Now speaking of Peter Mackay.,,”
Despite angry demands that he apologize, Klein says he has no intention of doing so. In the context of a roast (which is not a toast) “I thought it was a funny line.” So did his deputy premier, Shirley McClellan, who blames the media for reporting the matter.
Was this a vulgar sexist joke? Should Klein apologize?
