Reading nearly fifty years of Canadian Dimension’s eye on Alberta is both sobering and heartening. Sobering because one realizes how little the province’s political culture and economy changed during that period, but heartening to see how often the magazine was in the vanguard of critically examining several important issues — and, one wonders, perhaps signaling in a small way the political shift that in 2015 saw a New Democratic government elected in the province.
