Statement on the Death of Queen Elizabeth II
OTTAWA - We join with all Canadians and the entirety of the Commonwealth in mourning the death of our longest-reigning monarch and Commander-in-Chief of our Canadian Armed Forces, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
In this time of sadness, we are also profoundly grateful for the life and work of an extraordinary Queen, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. As she promised to do on her 21st birthday, Her Majesty devoted her entire life to the service of her subjects. Her seven decades on the throne were marked by enormous change, but she remained a constant – and her unwavering devotion to duty has been an inspiration to generations of Canadians.
Our deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences are with the Royal Family and the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.
