Subject: Canada's great loss
Former Alberta premier Peter Lougheed was a champion of Canada -- all of Canada (Lougheed Was A Champion Of Alberta -- Sept. 14). Don Getty had the order absolutely right when he said, "We have lost a great man, and a great Canadian and a great Albertan."

Where so many saw what separated us, Peter Lougheed saw what held us together, in this province and in this country. We've lost a good one.
Frank Rogers, Edmonton
Peter Lougheed -- a mensch for all seasons and all reasons. They don't make that type any more.
