Former premier to attend Klein’s service on behalf of Yukon government

WHITEHORSE—Premier Darrell Pasloski said today that former Yukon premier Dennis Fentie will represent Yukoners at the celebration of life for former Alberta premier Ralph Klein in Calgary on Friday. The two former premiers were long-time friends and colleagues.

“On behalf of the people and Government of Yukon, I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Ralph Klein, who was a well-known and well-loved public figure in Alberta, Canada and beyond,” Pasloski said.

Among the honours bestowed on Klein were an Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree from the University of Calgary in 2011 and the Order of Canada in late 2012.
