Neil: My former Premier, Ralph Klein, has a history of alcoholism and events that stem from it and there has been no public plea for his dismissal. Then again, Alberta has done very well under Klein's stewardship whereas BC seems to stumble no matter who's in charge.

Here's something really funny and ironic that they've been broadcasting here in Vancouver on the local news channel...
Apparently, when he was arrested, he did not tell the police that he was a political leader or anything and pretended to be a regular Joe Blow from BC and then a few hours after they released him, the clown phones up the Maui police and asks "Is there going to be a press release about this???" and the police officer told him "No?!" Then, this got the cop wondering why this "Gordon Campbell" wanted to know about it, did some investigating, found out it was the premier of BC, and the news was out! LOL!!! If he had of kept his mouth shut, he would've been home free.
Also, like normal BC politics, this is all over the news and everyone is talking about it. I even drove through a roadbloack (they check drivers if they've been drinking) and the first thing I said to the cop was "What's wrong? Are you waiting for Gordon Campbell to come home?" and the cop just bursted out laughing... good ol' BC! It's too bad I have to go to Toronto in the morning (On Westjet 682!)
