The premier Premier

The Institute for Research on Public Policy ranks Peter Lougheed as Canada's best Premier from the last 40 years. Rounding out the top 5:

1. Peter Lougheed
2. William Davis
3. Allan Blakeney
4. Frank McKenna
5. Robert Bourassa

I ran a similar "best Premier" contest among blog readers back in 2007, March-Madness Style. Lougheed came out on top of that one as well, edging out Oliver Mowat in the final.

  • Those who decided the "best" premier apparently numbered 30. Hardly representative of the Canadian population!

    I think it's disgraceful that the Calgary Herald et al try to pass this off as a meaningful poll - when it's clearly not anywhere as meaningful as the national poll taken by the CBC where thousands or hundreds of thousands voted to decide who was the "best Canadian."

  • Having lived in Alberta during Lougheed I agree with him being near the top of the list.

    Having lived in Ontario in the final years of Davis I am surprised that he finished so high. He was a successful politician, but that does not automatically make him a good Premier. Perhaps there was an element of name recognition in his selection.
