MONTREAL — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has attended a funeral in Montreal today for Michael Pitfield, a former senator and clerk of the Privy Council.
Pitfield died last week at the age of 80.
Trudeau described Pitfield at the time as a family friend who was "especially dear'' to his father Pierre Elliott Trudeau and their family.
The prime minister will head to Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville this afternoon and highlight changes to the Canada Child Benefit.
He is expected to hold a media availability in the town east of Montreal.
