Edmonton Sun – Johnson – Alberta’s Lt. Gov. says she’s willing to toss Smith’s sovereignty act if unconstitutional

While the government of day had no way to counter the powers of reservation held by the Lieutenant Governor, it did control services provided to Government House, which served as official residence to Alberta’s first six vice-regal representatives. In the spring of 1938, the Committee of Supply of the Alberta Legislature eliminated all funds for the upkeep of Government House and Lieutenant Governor Bowen was informed that he and his family would have to vacate the residence by May 3. Lieutenant Governor Bowen refused to leave without an Order-in-Council while Premier Aberhart argued that such a measure was not necessary. To end the standoff, the Premier cut off the utilities to the building and fired the staff. The Lieutenant Governor finally signed the Order-in-Council and left Government House on May 9, 1938.

Alberta’s Lieutenant Governors have never returned to live in Government House. However, the contributions Honourable John Bowen offered as a guardian of Canada’s constitutional principles are shared with visitors to the house and stand as an important chapter in the nation’s vice-regal history.

Say says that Danielle Smith is attacking Salma Lakhani cuz Danielle Smith’s campaign is entirely devoid of any plan or policy other than scream how bad the others are. What scares Sal is that the other candidates for the leadership of the UCP and the premiership don’t other much more.

Sal says that Bible Bill lost a few tussles with the Feds and the Supremes, but his Alberta owned foray into banking survives today as ATB.

Sal says that Canadians waste valuable school time teaching Canadian kids British, European, American and world history but fail to teach Canadian kids the Canadian history cuz we’re afraid it might be boring. Bible Bill was not uninteresting.

Speaking of Canadian history Sal says Sal saw Sam Steel signing with the Wild of Minnesota and not one of the western Canadian teams. Sal’s disappointed that the western Canadian teams didn’t give a tip of their hat to Canadian history.

I waited all those years for a title shot, and when I finally got it, I had to pay $20,000 for the opportunity. My purse was only $18,000. So to make money, I had to bet $10,000 on myself at 8-5. That was how it was in those days.
