CALGARY — A state memorial service for a Calgary MLA killed while helping a motorist in a snowstorm will be held on Sunday.

Manmeet Bhullar, who represented the riding of Calgary-Greenway, was on his way to Edmonton from Calgary on Monday afternoon.

The 35-year-old stopped to help after a vehicle rolled on an icy, snowy stretch of the QE2 Highway north of Red Deer.

As he got out of his vehicle he was struck in the median by a semi that had lost control.

He later died in hospital.

The memorial service starts at noon at Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, and is open to the public.

A viewing will be held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the same location.
