EDMONTON -- Dave Hancock is the 15th premier of Alberta.

Hancock was sworn in during a ceremony at Government House on Sunday, four days after outgoing premier Alison Redford announced her resignation.

Flanked by smiling caucus members and ex-premier Ed Stelmach, Hancock said Alberta won't miss a step during his transition to premier and the four-to-six-month process to find his successor.

He said his government will get straight to work building the schools, roads and family-care clinics the Tory government has promised.
