NAT123 - (Politician-Moose-Gift) WINNIPEG. x-12s. A Manitoba politician is apologizing for saying a highway crash that left one of her colleagues a quadriplegic was a gift. Judy Klassen, a Liberal legislature member, made the remark to former M-P Steven Fletcher, who sits as an Independent in the Manitoba legislature. Fletcher nearly died when his vehicle hit a moose in 1996 and cannot move his limbs. Fletcher was debating a bill on moose hunting this week when he said he wouldn't mind seeing moose wiped out. Klassen took exception. ("..thank you.") (SOURCE:The Canadian Press)

TAG: Klassen says she later emailed Fletcher to apologize and hopes to make a more public apology in the legislature next week.
