Dear Dave:

I was at Edmonton City Hall today for the Utility Committee Meeting on Epcor water rate proposals & had not heard about the death of former Premier Jim Prentice & his fellow passengers by plane in British Columbia last night until the Committee broke for lunch at High Noon. So I walked due to the lack of cabs & buses downtown because of the inclement weather over here to the Alberta Legislature Cafe to have a memorial luncheon in honour of the former Premier, of course I sat in Premier Lougheed's old chair to show Head Of Her Majesty's Governmental respect. What can I say about Jim & to Karen & the family but sorry. He held the office of Premier for such a short time, but the point is: HE HELD THE OFFICE OF PREMIER & THAT HAS TO BE RESPECTED! Jim was so eloquent at Manmeet Bhullar's funeral as the Master of Ceremonies just XI months ago in Calgary. I wonder who will stand up to honour the former Premier. I think Steve Harper might be the best choice!

May You Always Remember Him,
