Authorities say seven people, including a former Canadian parliament member, are dead after a small plane crashed in Quebec.
According to CBC, Jean Lapierre, his wife, two brothers, one sister and two others were on their way to Lapierre's father's funeral. The investigation into what happened is just beginning, but police are trying to determine if the weather had anything to do with the crash.
