Mr. Speaker, I rise today on behalf of the constituents of Calgary Confederation. Our community lost a friend, a neighbour, and our former representative with the loss of the Hon. Jim Prentice.
Jim served as our member of Parliament, our member of the Alberta legislature, and our premier, and he represented us with dedication and commitment. He was a statesman in all he did, and our community is forever grateful. Jim always had time for his community and endeared himself to many.
His loss is a great loss for our nation and our province, but especially for our community. He will be deeply missed but never forgotten.
Farewell my friend.
