Reflections on the passing of former Premier Jim Prentice

Saddened to hear of the tragic death of former Premier Jim Prentice.

I will reflect today on Jim’s family. Their loss is enormous and they have my deepest condolences.

I will also reflect on Jim’s legacy. This isn’t just a loss for Calgary, Alberta or Canada. The world has lost an influencer. Jim was a person who created impact and meaning.

Finally, there is a lesson from Jim Prentice; a lesson of public service. Jim stood up and led when leadership was required. In a world where criticism comes easy and solutions are hard, Jim was always working on solutions.

Canada is better because of him, and worse for losing him. He will be missed.
