Special memory of Lougheed

Peter Lougheed will always be remembered for the leadership he exhibited in establishing the cornerstones of modern day Alberta.
His lists of accomplishments are legion. However, I remember him in two special ways.
First, as being the premier of the province that established St. Albert as a city in 1977.
Second, as leading his cabinet team in a softball game at a ball park one fine summer evening surrounded by a crowd of St. Albert and district residents and well wishers.
Peter Lougheed understood the need of a cabinet and a caucus to keep in close personal touch with the Alberta electorate.
