|Member of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta for Leduc|
|Preceded by||Terry Kirkland|
|Succeeded by||district abolished|
November 28, 1940 |
|Political party||Progressive Conservative Association of Alberta|
Klapstein was elected to the Alberta Legislature in the 1997 Alberta general election. He defeated incumbent Liberal MLA Terry Kirkland in a hotly contested election to pick up the Leduc electoral district for the Progressive Conservatives. He was reelected to his second term, winning a landslide in the 2001 Alberta general election.
Klapstein was appointed as an ex officio member by Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Development Shirley McClellan in July 2000. This appointment came under investigation by the ethics commissioner Robert Clark in 2003 as a breach of the Conflict of Interest Act. After the investigation, Klapstein was found to have breached the Act but no penalties were imposed.
