Alberta MLA Grant Hunter tweeted on Saturday, "Wernher von Braun said, 'To conquer the universe you have to solve two problems: gravity and red tape' we've made it clear that we are committed to reducing red tape in Alberta. Lots more to come..."
The quote was from an opinion piece penned by Rob Layton, news manager of the Corus Edmonton group of radio stations.
The quote was originally said by Nazi SS Officer Von Braun.
Von Braun was the creator of the V-2 Ballistic Missile used by the Nazi's in the Second World War.
Hunter since deleted the tweet and the opinion piece has been edited to remove the quote.
