Happy 25th birthday, NEP!
Yes, it was 25 years ago today that Pierre Trudeau unveiled the National Energy Program. Hooray.
John Weissenberger and George Koch have an excellent article in the Calgary Herald which debunks the claims of modern liberals who claim that the NEP wasn't that bad for Alberta and that its architects had noble motives. (The article is behind a subscriber wall, but it should be up on their blog fairly soon.)
