A state funeral for former finance minister, Jim Flaherty will be held Wednesday in Toronto. The honour is normally reserved for current and former governors general, prime ministers and sitting members of cabinet, although a state funeral may be offered to any eminent Canadian at the discretion of the prime minister. Flaherty died suddenly on Thursday, reportedly from a massive heart attack, but that has not been confirmed. The 64-year old was only a month removed from stepping down as finance minister, a portfolio he held since the Conservatives came to power in early 2006.
