At the Calgary Glenbow museum, I came across an infographic sewn on a large piece of fabric that described the “Social Credit” economic system. The “Socreds” won the 1935 provincial election with the promise to give every family $25 a month (the “basic dividends” shown at the top right of the image below). They were unable to keep their promise and the party later abandoned its revolutionary platform. Judging from the poster, however, I’m surprised anyone was able to make sense of it!
