Alberta[edit]

Vegreville: Albert Ernest Archer[edit]

Albert Ernest Archer received 4,806 votes (28.45%), finishing second against Social Credit incumbent Anthony Hlynka. See his biography for further details.

Wetaskiwin: Robert Henry Charles Harrison[edit]

Robert Harrison was a barrister.[1] He received 3,040 votes (16.68%), finishing fourth against Social Credit incumbent Norman Jaques.

The website of the Glenbow Museum of Alberta includes references to a Queen's Counsel named Robert H. Harrison, who was inducted as an honorary chief of the Tsuu T'ina Nation in 1967.[2][3] It is possible that this is the same person as the 1945 candidate.
