Perth—Wellington, ON: John Nater, Member of Parliament for Perth—Wellington and Shadow Minister for Canadian Heritage released the following statement on the death of Her Majesty The Queen:
“It is with great sadness that I send condolences on behalf of myself and my family, along with the constituents Perth—Wellington to the Royal Family following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
“For these past 70 years, Her Majesty has served as Queen of Canada and Head of the Commonwealth. She always had a special love and admiration for our country, and that love and admiration was reciprocated to her by Canadians from coast to coast to coast. During her long reign, The Queen visited Canada more often than any other country in the Commonwealth. Each time, she was greeted with large crowds waving and cheering with hopes of catching a glimpse of her.
“As Sovereign she showed a deep respect and empathy for people around the world. She was the epitome of grace and provided a sense of calmness across the globe regardless of the circumstances.
“With the death of our Queen, Canada and our Commonwealth family are transitioning out of our long and proud Second Elizabethan Era. However, with her long legacy of service she will be fondly remembered for many more decades to come.”
