Trudeau attends funeral in Cape Breton - Cape Breton PostFriday, August 12, 2016
Several Liberal MPs also attended the funeral, including Cape Breton-Canso MP Rodger Cuzner, Sydney-Victoria MP Mark Eyking and St. John’s South-Mount Pearl MP Seamus O’Regan.
On Twitter Monday afternoon, Gerald Butts described the funeral as a great send-off for his mother.
“Thanks to so many friends & family for coming. She lived a long, full life. May we all be so blessed,” he wrote. “My dad died six years ago today, and today we buried our mom. You don’t get to choose your parents, but man did we luck out.”
In an interview with the Cape Breton Post last year following Trudeau’s election victory, Rita said she was excited for her son, who at that time was one of Trudeau’s key advisers.
"I'm so grateful that he accomplished what he set out to do," she said. “He enjoys what he does, that’s what makes it even that much more special."
Caroline McNeil, a friend of a member of the Butts family, attended Monday’s funeral and said she didn’t know Trudeau was there when she first took her seat in the church, but saw him as he helped a woman to her seat following communion. She said it was nice to see Trudeau there in support of Gerald and the Butts family.
“I thought it was just so sweet,” he said. “Being the prime minister, he thought of his friend and wanted to be here for his friend.”

Deer Lake town council approves crematorium for Main Street funeral home - The Western StarThursday, April 12, 2018
Ball.The mayor said the town researched the issue and the particular unit Parsons Funeral Home is proposing to use.Newfoundland and Labrador does not have emission standards that are specific to crematoriums, but Ball said every indication was that the emissions from the crematorium unit would easily meet all the existing standards in the province.The funeral home is already in a zone designated as commercial, so no rezoning was required to permit the crematorium.Ball said council understands the sensitive nature of the topic, but believes they made the right decision.“Today’s technology has all the checks and balances needed and we don’t think there is any reason for anyone to be alarmed,” he said.Let's block ads!
