Writings

A selection of my writings of which I’m particularly proud.

“An Honest Government with Nothing to Hide”

Alberta’s election in 1955 was supposed to resolve any questions as to the integrity and capability of the Social Credit League, the governing party lead by Premier Ernest Manning. Instead, it was very nearly the end of twenty years of dominance in the Legislative Assembly. Recent scandals caused a crisis of public faith, and Social Credit only just managed to hold onto power by leveraging the province’s acclimatization to one-party dominance, profound religiosity, and loyalty to Manning himself.
