If we could all be Peter Lougheed: provincial premiers and their legacies, 1967-20071

British Journal of Canadian Studies (2012), 25, (1), 77–114.

Abstract

As David Greenberg argued in his book Nixon's Shadow: The History of an Image, ‘I believe that history consists not only in what important people did and said but equally in what they symbolized - what they meant - to their publics.’ The central research questions of this article are as follows: What has become of the legacies of two-term (and plus) provincial premiers and how have those legacies been shaped? Using the 1967 Confederation of Tomorrow (and its importance to the national profile of a number of premiers) and 2007 (the year after Ralph Klein's retirement) as a forty-year time frame, this analysis will consider the legacies of 29 premiers from Bill Bennett to Brian Tobin. To answer these questions, 54 Canadian political scientists and historians were surveyed on premiers' social, economic and political legacies.
