Former Alberta premier Jim Prentice lands job at Washington think-tank
Prentice to complete book on energy, environmental issues during 4-month stint at U.S. Wilson Center
Former Alberta premier Jim Prentice has a new job.
The Washington-based Canada Institute at the Wilson Center says Prentice has joined the organization as a visiting fellow.
The think-tank works to increase awareness about Canada and Canada-U.S. relations among U.S. policymakers and opinion leaders.

The Center says Prentice will use his time to complete a book on energy and environmental issues, including climate change and pipelines.
Prentice's book is to be published later this year.
He resigned from Alberta politics last May after the NDP swept the Progressive Conservatives from power.
