A public state memorial service for former Alberta Premier Jim Prentice is being held today at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium.
Prentice, along with 3 others, were killed in a plane crash just outside of Kelowna, B.C.
The Prentice family wrote, “He will be fondly remembered for his smile, his laugh, and the depth of his care and compassion for those he loved.”
Speakers at the service will include former prime minister Stephen Harper, Premier Rachel Notley, and Lieutenant Governor Lois Mitchell.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be directed to the Children’s Cottage Society.
