Surplus Delight!

From the Edmonton Sun:
 
(Alberta) Premier Ralph Klein announced yesterday that every man, woman and child in the province will receive a $400 dividend from his government before year’s end. That means a family of four will get $1,600, likely in a single cheque mailed to each household, Klein said during a cabinet retreat in Lethbridge. He shrugged off criticism he has received from some quarters that his notion of issuing "prosperity cheques" was a misguided use of surplus revenues.
 
"If they don’t want it, send it back, or make a charitable donation or do something with it," he said.
