The man of the people, the man who paid off our debt, the humble man who had big ideas, the man who had a clear vision, the man who defied all categories - in my mind one of Canada's greatest premiers, is no longer with us. The Edmonton Journal has a good collection of stories relating to his life.
Lots will be said about him in the days and years to come. In the meantime, our condolences to his wife, family, and loved ones.
Update: Lorne Gunter, as always, cogently makes the case for Klein's legacy.
