Flaherty will be honoured with a state funeral Wednesday at 3pm at St. James Cathedral on Church St, near King St.

Visitation is set for Tuesday in Flaherty's hometown of Whitby. It will be at the Abilities Centre on Gordon St, south of Victoria St W, 12:30 pm-4 pm and again from 6:30 pm-8 pm.

Flaherty and his wife Christine Elliott have been champions of facility that offers sports and artistic activities for people with and without disabilities.  The couple has triplet boys--Galen, John and Quinn who are in their 20s. John has a mental disability has has been active with the Special Olympics.

Flaherty's family has asked for donations to the Abilities Centre in lieu of flowers.

    Well done all who arranged this...
    ...and a state funeral is the most perfect and appropriate course of action in saluting one of Canada's best and brightest.
