Former Alberta premier Ralph Klein's chief of staff is helping out provincial Liberal leadership candidate Mike de Jong. In a brief interview yesterday, Rod Love confirmed his involvement with the campaign, explaining "He's an old friend of mine. I'm volunteering from afar - offering advice." Asked how he came to become friends with Mr. de Jong, Mr. Love said, I was with Ralph Klein for 20 years. And Ralph and Gordon Campbell were mayors together and then premiers together. So, over the course of the years, I spent obviously a lot of time in B.C. And I just got to know Mike - joint meetings and golf tournaments and stuff."
