OTTAWA (ON), February 6, 2022 /CNW/ – This year we mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

grow in Northern Quebec, my grandmother showed us pictures of The Queen. Her Majesty was revered in the Arctic because the relationship between the Crown and Indigenous peoples is considered sacred.

For the past 70 years, Her Majesty has been a reassuring and consistent figure of compassion and poise. She has witnessed the evolution of our country during her many visits to Canadawhich she calls her “second home”.

Much has changed over the past seven decades. We have extended the hand of friendship to nations around the world. We have made progress in medical research, most recently with vaccines. We set up the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and participated in its work. We have seen the first Canadian Governor General, then the first woman, and now the first Aboriginal person.

We should be proud of our diverse and inclusive society and what we have achieved together.

In communities from coast to coast, people celebrate the Jubilee by paying homage to the only monarch many of us have ever known.

Across the country, you will see the unique crest created by the Canadian Heraldic Authority for this important occasion. One of the many commemorations of this important year.

I want to congratulate Her Majesty on the platinum jubilee.

Thank you for your unwavering dedication to our collective well-being.

Mary Simon
