Interesting article about how the Liberals came to power in 1905...the usual, the Federal Liberals promised the moon and delivered nothing. I am shocked, they were at the same games as they are now way back in 1905! Oh, forget it, I'm not really shocked, it's what I expect of the Liberals. Bet this isn't in the history text books!
The Liberal Party took office in 1905, before Albertans had a chance to vote. They benefited from their association with the governing federal Liberals, who appointed the province's first Lieutenant Governor and made promises that depended on the cooperation of the provincial government. The Opposition Conservatives' advocated similar policies, but their support was limited mostly to southern Alberta, where fewer ridings were drawn. With no effective opposition, the Alberta Liberals held on to power until 1921.
Lefties often harp about Alberta being a one party province, and how that has ruined our province. Funny, we hear nothing about corruption in Alberta, but BC, Ontario and especially Quebec seem to be bogged down in corruption problems, something the lefties fail to mention is they are all run by LIBERALS! Fancy that! I say, Albertans are smart enough to not elect any lefty party in our very prosperous province. We now send our tax dollars to have not provinces like Liberal Quebec and Liberal Ontario, and Liberal PEI, need I say more? Keep your "progressive" economy killing lefty parties out of Alberta, we are doing just fine thank you.
The winds of change are blowing again in Alberta. Wild Rose is tied with the PC's.
