Alberta – history trivia

I just listened to the CBC The House podcast. The host interviewed former Alberta Premier Lougheed and he is calling for Alberta to take more of a leadership position in Canada – on the environment and other issues. He said that at some point in Alberta’s past, the province actually lent money from the Heritage Fund to other provinces.

Wow. Now the voice out of Alberta are mostly crapping on the poor provinces.

Times have changed. Imagine if Alberta loaned New Brunswick a few billion to help with self-sufficiency (at low interest of course).
