Lougheed Struggled To Improve Resource Royalty Share For Albertans ... Saskatchewan Needs Its Premier Wall To Do The Same

There will be numerous tributes to former Alberta Premier Lougheed on his passing. He loved Alberta. No one can doubt that. His mark in Alberta history is well noted and deserved.

His greatest accomplishment will be debated to some degree, but there is no doubt that his creation of the Alberta Heritage Fund AND a restructuring of the resource royalty structure to benefit all Albertans is beyond argument.

Saskatchewan's Premier Wall would be well served to remember Lougheed's accomplishments for the People of Alberta. Unfortunately, Saskatchewan's ruling party seems to think that merely having spin off jobs from resource development with minimal royalty earnings is good enough. Lougheed's actions as Premier of Alberta leave Brad Wall's approach severely wanting.

H/T to Peter Lougheed.
