Just days after the death of former premier Peter Lougheed, vandals have damaged the historic home of his grandfather in Calgary.
Staff at Lougheed House say the estate was targeted sometime late Saturday or early Sunday.
They say vandals climbed up to the second storey of the mansion in the city's southwest and spray-painted the sloping metal roof of a tower.
They also spray-painted a chimney and an east-fac-ing sandstone wall.
Lougheed House was built in 1891 and was home to Sir James Alexander Lougheed. He was a lifelong Conservative who campaigned for Sir John A. Macdonald and was appointed to the Canadian Senate in 1889. His Calgary home was considered a hub of social activity for the city's elite.
Alberta designated the home a historic resource in 1976. It was declared a national historic site in 1995.
