Thousands of mourners at Canadian solider’s funeral

“Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper told thousands of mourners the nation was deeply grateful to a soldier killed by a gunman in Ottawa last week,” a BBC News posted yesterday. The article continued, “Mr Harper spoke at a funeral for Cpl Nathan Cirillo, 24, who was shot by Michael Zehaf-Bibeau while standing guard unarmed at Canada’s war memorial. Zehaf-Bibeau, 32, then entered Canada’s parliament and fired dozens of shots. Mr Harper choked back tears as he addressed Cirillo’s five-year-old son, Marcus Daniel Cirillo.” Read the full article here. | Raymond Matt, CFP, CLU, TEP, CHS
