By Dylan Robertson THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA-Canada is sending a handful of celebrities alongside its official delegation to the queen’s state funeral Monday in London, England. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Gov. Gen. Mary Simon and their spouses are leading the delegation, which departs Friday, though it’s unclear whether all guests will travel on the same aircraft. The group will include former governors general Michaelle Jean and David Johnston as well as former prime ministers Kim Campbell, Jean Chretien, Paul Martin and Stephen Harper. The Prime Minister’s Office did not respond to a question about whether it invited Simon’s immediate predecessor, Julie Payette, who resigned in January 2021  amid allegations of workplace harassment. The delegation at Westminster Abbey will include Assembly of First Nations National Chief RoseAnne Archibald, Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami
