May I suggest amending the title to specify which house of commons? There are after all, plenty of them in this wide wide world.
"State funeral for last World War I veteran approved by Canadian House of Commons" ?
"Canadian House of Commons approves state funeral for last WW1 veteran" ?
Something like that so that people can get a better feel for the article to decide to click the link or not?

Agreed. I changed the title by adding Canadian House of Commons. —FellowWikiNews (W) 20:17, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Title dispute[edit]

The title "Canada's Commons OKs State Funerals" was very misleading. It said Canada approved state funerals for the first time. However, Canada had state funerals before. In my title "State funeral for last World War I veteran approved by Canadian House of Commons" said that they approved a state funeral for the last WWI veteran. I have since changed it to "State funeral approved by Canadian House of Commons" to shorten the title while explaining the most important part. —FellowWikiNews (W) 21:01, 26 November 2006 (UTC)
