The Alberta government has announced a state memorial will be held for Jim Prentice next Friday in Calgary.
The former Alberta premier was killed last week in a plane crash, along with 3 others enroute from Kelowna to Calgary.
The October 28th service will be held at the Jubilee Auditorium at 11am.
It is open to the public.
Meanwhile Transportation Safety Board investigators are wrapping up their work at the scene of the plane crash.
Investigators have collected all the required data from the crash site, about 10 kilometres northeast of the Kelowna airport.
Wreckage of the four-seat Cessna Citation will now be removed by helicopter and taken to a warehouse for further analysis.
The board says some of the work will include reviewing RCMP drone footage of the crash site, examining the plane’s instruments, and evaluating plane maintenance and pilot records. Some of the wreckage will also be sent to the TSB lab in Ottawa.
The Cessna crashed last Thursday and investigators have already said it could take as long as a year to determine a cause.
The aircraft did not carry, nor was it required to carry in-flight data or cockpit voice recorders.
