Long-time Alberta premier hospitalised


Former Alberta premier Peter Lougheed is seriously ill and in the Peter Lougheed Centre hospital in Calgary, the National Post reports. The hospital was named for the premier and leader of the Alberta Progressive Conservatives, who served from 1971 to 1985.

Lougheed’s family has declined to comment on his condition, but the 84-year old has been suffering from an undisclosed illness for some time.

Lougheed is one of Alberta’s best loved politicians, and was named Canada’s greatest premier of the past 40 years this June.
