The passing of Jason Goodstriker: Premier Kenney
Premier Jason Kenney issued the following statement on the passing of Jason Goodstriker:
“I am shocked at the terribly sad news of the untimely death of my friend Jason Goodstriker.
“Jason was a proud member of the Kainai band of the Blackfoot people. He served as band councillor, and was elected as Alberta Regional Chief for the Assembly of First Nations.
“He was a passionate Albertan, serving most recently on the Fair Deal Panel. He told me that he was energized by the opportunity to listen to Albertans across the province, and to tackle important issues about Alberta’s role in Confederation.
“Jason had a huge heart. He brought joy everywhere he went. He was devoted to his community, and was a loving husband to Tiffany and father to their children.
“He was proud to work in the oil and gas industry, and to fight for Indigenous people to benefit fully from the development of our natural resources.
“I was proud to call Jason a friend since we attended high school together at Notre Dame College in Saskatchewan. He will be greatly missed by so many.”
