As we further contemplate the significance of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II we explore other perspectives (than previously published here and here ) on this event.

Canada was the country that Queen Elizabeth II visited most in all of the Commonwealth.

She reputedly called Canada “home”.

The Government of Canada held a national ceremony in honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away on September 8, 2022.

This historic event took place on Monday, September 19, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. (ET) at Christ Church Cathedral in Ottawa following all elements of the state funeral in London. Canadians heard from First Nations Elder Albert Dumont, former Governor General Adrienne Clarkson  and a former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney.
