A man who died in a mountain climbing accident in British Columbia this week has been identified as a Calgarian.
The coroners office in B.C. says 71 year old Rick Collier fell to his death Wednesday after a rock face gave way on a mountain in Mount Robson Provincial Park.
Collier unsucessfully ran for the Calgary Glenmore riding in the last provincial election as a member of the NDP.
A total of four people were in the Collier's climbing party and two others were injured.
