Alberta health care stays public

Now this is a glorious headline if I ever saw one: Alberta backs away from 'Third Way' health reforms.

The Alberta government, which announced with much fanfare earlier this year that it was about to turn health care in Canada on its ear, has announced it will not proceed with its so-called "Third Way" health reforms.
And just think, all it took was tossing King Ralph out on his ear and a smackdown from Stevie.

[Update: More in the Globe and Mail.]

In the campaign, PMSH said private delivery ok, if publicly paid. He will not waver from that. Seems Alberta will support him.

Is that why the flags are at half-mast at the Legislature?
