As the United Kingdom, Canada, Commonwealth realms and member nations, and people around the world mourn the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, municipalities around the country are issuing statements of condolence.

At the Town of New Tecumseth council meeting on Monday, September, 12, Council

observed a moment of reflection to honour the Monarch and the Royal Family.

Deputy Mayor Richard Norcross, said that the New Tecumseth Public Library has been working on condolence books for the Royal Family.

The books will be place at all three branches of the library and the public may sign them.

The books will be sent to the Royal Family.

“This afternoon I was saddened to learn of the passing of our monarch, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at Balmoral Castle, Scotland.” said Simcoe County Warden George Cornell, through a statement issued by the County. “Since her accession to the throne in 1952, Queen Elizabeth II has been a champion of duty and service, and Her Majesty is much loved and respected around the globe for her devotion to her role as Queen of the Commonwealth.

“Her journey from a young girl who did not expect to be Queen, to an iconic and celebrated international figure is a great source of pride and inspiration for many people worldwide. Over the past 70 years, Her Majesty has offered steadfast leadership during times of great change and uncertainty. Throughout her long life, Queen Elizabeth II has always maintained her strong commitment to public and voluntary service, with links to more than 600 charities, military associations, professional bodies and public service organizations of which 36 are in Canada.

“Today, I join with those throughout Simcoe County who mourn the loss of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. During her reign, Queen Elizabeth II maintained a strong connection with Canada, visiting more times than any other commonwealth country. On behalf of the County of Simcoe, we offer our deepest sympathies to the Royal Family.”
