B.C. may have seemed to them like a Third World province then, with no serious fossil-fuel revenue source except Tumbler Ridge coal (remember BRIC shares). Alberta had oil galore and more to come from what were still called the "tar sands."

My Alberta colleagues got their wakeup call in the 1990s, when Conservative premier Ralph Klein slashed the provincial budget by 20 per cent.

With the new Jason Kenney budget, it looks as if he's paying homage to both Klein and B.C.'s budget-slashing Socred premier Bill Bennett.
