Former Alberta premier’s memorial vandalized in cemetery
CALGARY- A memorial in a Calgary cemetery for a former Alberta premier has been vandalized.
Someone scrawled the numbers ‘666’ along with an upside-down cross, on the memorial in Union Park Cemetery to Peter Lougheed.
The damage occurred sometime late last week, and the Lougheed family learned about it on Monday.
The city had to hire a graffiti removal company to remove the markings, as they were so deeply embedded in the stone. It appears that the vandals used a sharpie pen.
A nearby war memorial was also defaced.
Lougheed passed away in September, at the age of 84.
