Dave Hancock to be interim Alberta premier

Alberta's Deputy Premier Dave Hancock will be interim premier once Alison Redford's resignation takes effect Sunday.

The long-time Edmonton MLA will hold the province's top job until the Progressive Conservative Party selects a new leader sometime within the next six months. 

Redford announced her resignation on Wednesday after months of caucus turmoil and public agitation over her travel expenses.
