I remember meeting this man when he was a Liberal MP in the 1980s. Saw the news post earlier but only just now saw elsewhere that Lapierre was on the plane and died on his way to his father’s funeral. Deepest condolences to the Lapierre family who now have to deal with another loss in this sudden and tragic manner.
Learn this morning the day after it’s not just him but his wife, a sister, and 2 brothers going to that funeral. The tragedy is complete.
