dc.description.abstractThe settlers who came to Regina in the 1880's thought of themselves as Central Canadians involved in westward expansion. Left by the Dominion Government, C.P.R. and C.N.W.L.C.to fend for themselves, however, they were soon cast adrift of this romantic notion, and developed municipal government as a means to control their own destiny. In the process, these influential pioneers shaped municipal institutions throughout the North-West Territories. Regina's unique municipal evolution continued to influence the forms and powers of civic governments, though this lessened with the coming of prosperity and the dramatic urban growth which accompanied it. After 1913, Regina's civic government again played a leading role in the development of municipal institutions, establishing a powerful Commission form of government and an effective civic administration. By 1920, Regina was a leading influence in the development and practices of Saskatchewan municipalities.en_US
