Colleagues and political rivals share fond memories at the Flaherty funeral in Toronto

By: JAMES DI FIORE

They say public service is thankless, but if the Jim Flaherty funeral is any indication, public service can be recognized by friends and foes alike. Flaherty was laid to rest today at St. James Cathedral in Toronto in a service attended by familiar faces of Parliament Hill from all the major parties, as well as the thousands who lined the streets of Toronto.

Several cabinet ministers, former politicians and political rivals shared their thoughts on the man known as ‘Jimmy’ in a send off not seen since departure of Jack Layton 3 years ago.
