The Canadian government has announced that a state funeral will be held in Montreal on March 23 in tribute to former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney.

His coffin will be laid to rest first in Ottawa, then in Montreal.

These events will give Canadians the opportunity to pay tribute to Mulroney’s memory and recognize his significant contribution to Canada.

Brian Mulroney, Canada’s 18th prime minister, died on February 29 at the age of 84, leaving a legacy that is still open to debate. As a statesman and politician, he had a profound impact on Canadian politics.

Brian Mulroney led Canada from 1984 to 1993, marking a period of impotent transformation for the country. His notable achievements include the negotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Mulroney’s strong opposition to apartheid and the introduction of the controversial Goods and Services Tax (GST).
