Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown issued the following statement on the passing of the Honourable Jim Prentice:
“On behalf of all Ontarians, I want to express my condolences on the passing of Jim Prentice. This is a devastating day for both Alberta and Canada.
“Jim was a proud Albertan and Canadian. He cared deeply about the public good and served our country passionately. His contributions to public life will not be forgotten.
“Most importantly, Jim was a beloved friend. He was a good man, an accomplished public servant, and a Monday night hockey warrior during our days in Ottawa. I was lucky to have had the opportunity to work alongside him as a member of parliament. I personally knew Jim as a devoted and loving husband, father and grandfather.
“On behalf of the Ontario PC Caucus, I extend my deepest condolences to his wife Karen, their children and extended family.”
