The year now closing, while It did not bring uniform prosper- ity as was expected to tho people, resulted in a very considerable in- crease In the generul wealth of the province. It must, however, be admitted that the year has provid- ed fresh proof of the need in this province of a permanent and de- pendable supply of moisture. The average rainfall over a period of years ia not tufficient for a wheat- growing country. The supply is too variable, or, when rain does come, It IB too often at the wrong sea- son. This applies especially to certain sections of the country. The year 1920 has demonstrated anew the' absolute need of< irriga- tion in parts of southern and "cen- tral Alberta. Irrigation systems, with their assured advantages, are certain to be established In time. But they are needs cf the immedi- ate present, not of some dim, dis- tant future. AH the interests which d epend upon a uniformly productive and prosperous Al- farmers themselves, the banks and business en- in an intelligently directed and tirelpas Campaign to secure, by the best means available, the early financing and construction of irrigation systems in the districts named. That problem solved, Al- berta, with her vast resources of coal, timber, and the untapped riches of the north, can look for- ward to development on a scale wholly unequalled in the past.
