Very tragic hearing that Jim Prentice was killed in a small plane crash in British Columbia this past week. The former and 16th Premier of Alberta Canada who was 60 yo was traveling with 3 others in a twin engine Cessna plane that disappeared from radar shortly after leaving Kwelona, BC on Thursday October 13th.
The Prentice family issued a statement Friday, saying the loss of two family members at once is "unbelievably painful."
"Words cannot begin to express our profound shock and heartbreak," the statement reads.
The plane is owned by Calgary-based Norjet Inc. The company stated it will co-operate with the Transportation Safety Board's investigation.
