History / Biographical
The Lafarge Canada Exshaw Plant Expansion and demolished of town The expansion was announced in 1972 when residents were notified by letter that the cement plant was expanding onto the land then occupied by the town of Exshaw. Plant Manager Tom Pierce visited every family affected by the expansion and explained that the plant had to expand or it would be closed. The demolition began in July of 1973 and was completed in two phases. Forty seven homes were affected by the expansion, ten of which were privately owned. The houses owned by the company were offered to their tenants for one dollar, and the owners of privately owned houses on company land were given a sum equalling half the appraised value of the house. The home owners then moved the houses onto lease land not needed for the plant expansion or onto private lots within the community. Other sites demolished as part of the expansion were the elementary school, the general store, the Protestant church, the Portland Hotel, the curling and skating rinks, and the entirety of Main Street, which was known as Portland Avenue, except for the St. Catholic Church. The Portland Hotel was constructed in 1906 and had been the social hub of the community. It was located at the top of Portland Avenue and served as a community centre, restaurant and dance hall. At that time, the existing plant was also demolished and replaced, and a new 600 foot kiln was installed.

History / Biographical
In the 1920's, Banff experienced a steady increase in tourism. This was based on a number of factors, including the introduction of the automobile in the park, the completion of the Banff-Windermere Highway and other roadways, additional accommodation (e.g. campgrounds), and the Canadian Pacific Railway's "Canadian Pacific Rockies" tourist campaign. Local prominent townspeople began to seek more say in the way their town was governed, and thus created organizations like the Banff Advisory Council and the Rocky Mountain Park Liberal Association. Issues around park boundaries, campgrounds, and park services employees' priorities were particularly important to Banff locals during this decade.
Scope & Content
Item consists of a bound green record book, H20 x W13 cm. The record book, with "Records" printed on the cover, is comprised of numbered lined pages and contains meeting minutes and membership lists for the Rocky Mountain Park Liberal Association from March 13th, 1924 to circa 1930. Minutes pertain to different types of meetings: general and executive. Contents pertain to various topics, including the creation of the Association and membership, provincial Liberal candidates, electing members for the Association's executive committee, concerns about who was being appointed to park services, employment in the park, advocating for the dismissal of Jack Warren (a park warden), and park boundary issues.
Notes
Created by the Rocky Mountain Park Liberal Association.
Dave White originally had the lease for 222 Otter Street and transferred the lease to Sam Armstrong in 1915, who had it until 1927. Sam Armstrong was a member of the Rocky Mountain Liberal Association.
Membership included representatives from Banff, Canmore, Exshaw, and East End. Meetings were generally held at the Mount Royal Hotel in Banff and the Canmore Hotel.
Most of the minutes were taken by W. Alexander and James Smith, who both acted as secretary at some point in the Association's history.
