The United States of America since the death of their 41st President, George H W Bush, has seen nations around the world mourining and sending in their condolences to the Bush family, and the President Donald Trump, and their neighbour Canada, is taking that a step further, as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that Canada will on Wednesday honour late President George H W Bush, by flying Canadian  flag at half-mast.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made this announcement a few hours ago, saying that all flags at federal buildings in Canada and Canadian offices in the US will be lowered to honour the former president.
He also described the late George H W Bush as a statesman, patriot and a true friend of Canada. He said:

“President George H.W. Bush was a statesman, patriot and true friend to Canada. On Wednesday, as Americans mourn his passing, flags on federal buildings in Canada and at Canadian offices in the United States will be flown at half-mast. May he rest in peace.”

Former President George H.W. Bush’s body arrived in Washington, DC, yesterday. He will lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda through Wednesday morning. It’s an honor reserved for government officials and military officers.

President Trump also spoke about the funeral arrangement of George H W Bush, saying it has been a wonderful event, and his wife and himself will be welcoming former US first lady, Mrs Bush to the White House. He said:

“Looking forward to being with the wonderful Bush family at Blair House today. The former First Lady will be coming over to the White House this morning to be given a tour of the Christmas decorations by Melania. The elegance & precision of the last two days have been remarkable!”
