Notice biographique

The Alberta Social Credit League was formed in 1932 by evangelist William (Bill) Aberhart and inspired by the speeches and writings of Major C.H. Douglas of Britain. Social Credit adherents believed that inefficient money management by government reduced the purchasing powers of the consumers and inhibited economic growth. The Alberta Social Credit League, led by Aberhart, came to power in the 1935 provincial election and would govern Alberta through the next eight provincial elections before being defeated by the Alberta Conservative Party in 1971. Offerdale is a district to the northeast of Wetaskiwin. The Offerdale Social Credit Group was formed on May 11, 1935 with Mr. Shackleton as president. Throughout its history, the Offerdale Social Credit Group sought to advance the influence of both the Alberta and federal Social Credit parties through the holding of meetings, the canvassing of neighbours, and other activities. The Offerdale Social Credit Group ceased functioning as an active political organization in 1982 and in 1986 liquidated all remaining assets.
