Don Getty
DONALD ROSS "DON" GETTY, OC AOE (August 30, 1933 – February 26, 2016) was a Canadian politician who served as the 11th Premier of Alberta
Alberta
between 1985 and 1992. A member of the Progressive Conservatives , he served as Energy Minister and Federal and Intergovernmental Affairs Minister in the government of Peter Lougheed before leaving politics for the private sector in 1979. He returned to politics six years later to contest the leadership contest resulting from Lougheed's retirement. He defeated two other candidates, and became Premier November 1, 1985. As Premier, Getty was faced with an economic slowdown and falling energy prices, which hit Alberta
Alberta
's petroleum -dominated economy hard. Faced with mounting government deficits and increasing unemployment, he cut social spending and intervened with government money to prevent businesses from failing. Several of these interventions backfired in high-profile fashion, failing at their intended objective and costing scarce public funds as well. While some analysts argue that Getty's fiscal program laid the groundwork for Ralph Klein
Ralph Klein
's later balancing of the provincial budget, on Getty's departure from office the government's debt had reached $11 billion, setting the stage for his successor to characterize the Getty years as an era of wasteful and excessive spending

Canada
. It was held on March 20, 1989 to elect members of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta
Alberta
. Many political observers were surprised by the early election call - less than three years had passed since the previous election . Premier Don Getty , in his second election as Progressive Conservative Party leader, led it to its sixth consecutive term in government, despite losing a significant share of the popular vote and two seats in the legislature, including his own seat of Edmonton-Whitemud to Liberal candidate Percy Wickman . The New Democratic Party led by Ray Martin largely held its share of the popular vote, and also its 16 seats in the legislature. The Liberal Party , under new leader Laurence Decore , was the principal beneficiary of the voters' continuing distrust of Don Getty. The Liberals' share of the popular vote increased to over 28%, more than the NDP, but the party's legislative caucus increased from four to only eight members. The Representative Party , which had elected 2 candidates in the previous election, did not run any candidates in 1989 (although it remained registered)
