A statement from Premier Darrell Pasloski

WHITEHORSE—As members of the public continue today to pay their respects, I wish to add my sincere condolences on behalf of the Government of Yukon to the people of Alberta on the passing of former premier Peter Lougheed.

Mr. Lougheed was one of the most inspiring figures in recent Canadian history and will be remembered for his tremendous vision and determination to put Alberta on the path to long-term economic success. Throughout his long and distinguished career he demonstrated true leadership as he guided Albertans into a secure future.

His loss is shared by friends, colleagues and citizens throughout the nation.
