mp erin: Trudeau was one of several speakers at the ceremony, along with Chan's wife Jean Yip and their three sons as well as childhood friends, according to CTV. Former Ontario premier Dalton McGuinty read from the Bible, and many of Chan's colleagues were honorary pallbearers, including Conservative MP Erin O'Toole and Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen. Chan, the member of parliament for Scarborough-Agincourt, died of cancer earlier this month at age 50. Chan was remembered as principled and optimistic, a devoted family man and a talented musician, and an MP completely engrossed with the political process. He said the last time he saw Chan, they sang Elton John's Your Song together, with Chan on piano. In an emotional tribute, Trudeau described Chan as passionate and convicted, calling him one of the most honourable members of that House of Commons. (www.immigrantscanada.com).
