Former Canadian cabinet minister Jean Lapierre has died in a plane crash that also killed his wife and three of his siblings on the way to his father’s funeral in eastern Quebec.

The TVA network, for which Lapierre worked as a political commentator, said all seven people on board Lapierre’s twin-engined chartered aircraft were killed on Tuesday when it crashed in bad weather as it was coming in to land on the Magdalen Islands in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.

Lapierre, 59, had been travelling to the Îles-de-la-Madeleine for the funeral of his 83-year-old father, TVA said. Also killed were Lapierre’s wife as well as two of his brothers and a sister, it added.
