Wetaskiwin Court House/La Palais de Justice de Wetaskiwin
[Francais] L’arrivee massive de colons dans l’Ouest canadien au début du XXe siècle entraina la construction de palais de justice. Celui de Wetaskiwin, terminé en 1909, compte parmi les premiers édifices administratifs de l’Alberta après la transformation, en 1905, de Territoires du Nord-Ouest en provinces. Pour les nombreux immigrants, les lignes classiques et imposantes de l’édifice symbolisaient la justice. N’ayant guère changé depuis sa construction, il est donc une précieuse illustration des palais de justice construits au début
