With just over 20 years in office, Bennett was and remains the longest-serving premier in British Columbia history. He was usually referred to as W.A.C. Bennett, although some referred to him either affectionately or mockingly as "Wacky" Bennett. He was born in Hastings, New Brunswick. He joined the Air Force during the First World War, but never saw active duty. He owned a series of hardware stores in different provinces before settling in Kelowna, BC. He partly owned Calona Wines before entering politics in 1940. As leader of the Social Credit party, he became premier. During his time as premier he introduced the first BC provincial flag.
