Hon. Ernest Charles Manning

Ernest Charles Manning, PC , CC , AOE , LL.D (September 20, 1908 - February 19, 1996), a Canadian politician, was Premier of Alberta between 1943 and 1968 for the Social Credit Party of Alberta. He served longer than any premier in the province's history, and was the second longest serving provincial premier in Canadian history (only after George H. Murray of Nova Scotia). For a period of time, Manning was the longest continually serving democratically elected official in the world. He was also the only member of the Social Credit Party of Canada to ever sit in the Senate. The Honourable Ernest C. Manning, Premier of Alberta Source: http://www. ... The Honourable Ernest C.

Manning was born in Carnduff, Saskatchewan in 1908 and was raised on a farm. A devoted listener of the evangelistic radio broadcasts of Alberta Premier William Aberhart, Manning enrolled in Aberhart's Calgary Prophetic Bible Institute in 1927, becoming the first graduate of that institution. In 1930, Manning himself began speaking on the Prophetic Bible Institute Sunday radio hours, which were broadcast to a large audience across Canada, a practice he kept up throughout his life.

In the 1935 provincial election, he was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta as a Social Credit MLA from Calgary. That same year he became Alberta's Provincial Secretary and Minister of Trade and Industry. In 1943, he became premier of Alberta after Aberhart died. Manning sought to purge anti-Semitic influences from the party; anti-Semitism had been a large part of the party's platform for years, but had become less fashionable in the wake of the Holocaust.

Under Manning, the party largely abandoned social credit theories. Manning had been a loyal supporter of Aberhart from the beginning, so it is not clear why he was so willing to ditch his party's traditional ideology. One likely explanation may have been pragmatic; many of Social Credit's policy goals infringed on responsibilities reserved to the federal government under the British North America Act. Manning, however, continued Social Credit's conservative social policies. For many years, airplanes could not serve alcohol while flying over the province.

Manning led Social Credit to seven consecutive election victories between 1944 and 1967, usually with more than 50% of the popular vote. Social Credit's electoral success was based on what was viewed as its good government of the province. However, an ominous sign came during his last victory, when the once-moribund Progressive Conservatives won seven seats, mostly in Calgary and Edmonton. Social Credit was slow to adapt to the changes in Alberta as its two largest cities gained increasing influence. Manning retired in 1968, and Social Credit was knocked out of office three years later. The Alberta general election of 1944 was the tenth general election for the Province of Alberta, Canada. ...

Manning also used his strong provincial standing to influence the federal Socreds. He told the 1961 federal leadership convention that Alberta would never accept francophone Catholic Real Caouette of Quebec as the party's leader. Robert Thompson of Alberta won the election, although Manning's objections to Caouette led to suspicions that the vote was fixed. The majority of the federal caucus was from Quebec, however. It followed Caouette into the Ralliement des créditistes, leaving behind a Social Credit rump in English Canada. Manning did not provide much support to Thompson's tiny caucus, being concerned with the leftward trajectory of both the federal Liberals and the Progressive Conservatives, and encouraged Thompson to try to bring about a merger of the federal Socred and PC parties. Negotiations failed but in 1967, with the support of both Manning and PC leader Robert Stanfield, Thompson ran in the next election with the PCs.
