I would be most pleased if you would include me in any discovery you make
about that connection.
The attempt to scupper the payment is also a matter of interest to me.
Were there people appealing to the supreme court to have it stopped, who
were they, and what were the issues aired ?
Did any of this have a connection with Albertas "Community chest" ?
Sorry about all the questions, but politically these are issued rising to
the surface again.

It has been common legend, that the Alberta Provincial Social Credit
Treasurer and finance officials made the trip to Alaska in the early
to assist the Officials there to set up the dividend fund. The same
was set up in Alberta, ready for implementation in the late seventies.
Peter Lougheed of the Progressive Conservatives defeated the Socreds in
1971, the nature of the Heritage Fund was changed to a loan fund for other
provinces, and it true dividend purpose thwarted.
I am currently seeking more documentation on the initial trip to
by the Socreds and would be grateful to have more information if anyone
come across such in the past.
