R.I.P. Jim Prentice

Sad news. Jim Prentice died in a plane crash last night:
Prentice, 60, was among four people on board a twin-engine Cessna Citation that took off from Kelowna bound for Springbank Airport near Calgary late Thursday evening. All four passengers died. One of them was Ken Gellatly, the father-in-law of one of Prentice’s daughters.
... The Progressive Conservatives lost the 2015 provincial election to Notley’s New Democrats and Prentice subsequently resigned as party leader, taking a job with the Washington-based Canada Institute at the Wilson Center in February 2016, where he worked as a visiting fellow.  
According to the Center, Prentice was working on a book about energy and environmental issues that was set to be published in late 2016. In June 2016 he joined the private equity firm Warburg Pincus as an energy analyst.
