I know it's a tough discussion, but I want to go back to how you stop Canadian traditions from being watered down. Specifically, and I don't want to get too much into it, but in my riding, a police officer was killed in action and a U.S.-type of service was followed because they could not get information on protocol. The flag was folded in a U.S. fashion. All the procedures for that were done following a U.S. service. They could not get the materials they needed. York Region is very large. It has one million people. The police force is very large. York Region is very close to Toronto. To hear that they were unable to get what they needed in time to do this service and had to follow another country's traditions, I find to be very disturbing. How do we stop that from happening?
