Murder-suicide funerals

A funeral will be held Wednesday in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, for Lionel Desmond and his mother Brenda. There’s no word on the funeral for his wife Shanna and daughter Aaliyah.

Ottawa has confirmed the government will pay for the services for all four family members after initially saying only Lionel Desmond was covered. Then the Prime Minister got involved and the bureaucrats changed their mind.
