EDMONTON — The hearse carrying former Alberta premier Peter Lougheed’s body has left Edmonton.

EDMONTON — The hearse carrying former Alberta premier Peter Lougheed’s body has left Edmonton.

Mounties in red serge carried his coffin out of the Alberta legislature and into a white hearse just after 6 p.m. Tuesday.

It passed by two landmarks that were special to him — Rutherford House and Knox-Metropolitan United Church, before heading to Calgary.

Lougheed stayed at Rutherford House while he was attending the University of Alberta and he and his wife, Jeanne, were married at the church.

Lougheed has been lying in state at the Alberta legislature since Monday after his death in a Calgary hospital last week, and thousands lined up to pay their respects.

A public memorial is planned for Friday in Calgary.
