Are there parallels between Alberta and Canada and Texas?

Ann Richards, former Texas governor, provides an interesting perspective on the history of Texas in terms of values, property rights, the environment etc., the Harper Conservative Party ran in the last federal election partly on increased property rights for land owners and weak policies on the environment as indicated by the recent withdrawal of Canada from the Kyoto Protocol on Global Warming. Also, about 40% of Alberta is privately owned (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_ownership_in_Canada) and the province is weak on the environment as showcased by the environmental disaster called the Alberta tar sands.
