Early history (to 1944)

The party dominated Saskatchewan politics for the province's first forty years providing six of the first seven premiers, and being in power for all but five of the years between the province's creation in 1905 and World War II. Located on the middle of the political spectrum, it assiduously courted "ethnic" (i.e., non-British) voters, as well as the organized farm movement, and refused to pander to "nativist" sentiment that culminated in the short, spectacular existence of the Ku Klux Klan in Saskatchewan in 1927-28. In Canada, a Premier is the head of government of a province. ...

Varying fortunes (1944-1978)

In the 1944 election, however, Saskatchewan experienced a dramatic change when it elected the first socialist government in North America under Tommy Douglas and the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation. The Liberals moved to the political right and remained out of power for twenty years until Ross Thatcher's victory in 1964 election. Thatcher led the Liberals to re-election in 1967.

The party in the 1980s and 1990s

The Liberals came under the leadership of future Lieutenant Governor Lynda Haverstock in 1989.

In the 1995 election, the Liberals displaced the Tories to become the Official Opposition to the re-elected NDP government of Roy Romanow. Many people believed the party would follow the path of the Liberals in British Columbia and again become the umbrella party for centre-right in Saskatchewan. However, dissatisfaction with the party's political moderation and suspicions about the party's links to the federal Liberals led to the new caucus dumping Haverstock as leader.

Recent history

The 1999 election reduced the Liberals, then led by Jim Melenchuk, to only three seats and third party status in the legislature. The NDP, however, had been unable to win an outright majority of seats and persuaded the Liberals to form a coalition government with the NDP. The Liberal MLAs were then appointed to positions in the Cabinet. One Liberal who had been narrowly defeated in his bid for a seat in the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan, David Karwacki opposed the coalition arrangement. Rank-and-file members of the party sided with Karwacki, and he was elected party leader, defeating MLA Jack Hillson who had initially joined the coalition, but later withdrew. Karwacki soon ordered the other two Liberal MLAs, Melenchuk and Ron Osika to leave the coalition. They refused and the party split. The pro-coalition Liberals eventually joined the NDP. These members, however, were not re-elected in the 2003 election. The Twenty-Fourth Provincial General Election in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan was held on September 16, 1999. ...
