On the occasion of the 92nd birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada:
Millions of people in Canada celebrate the 92nd birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada.
Her Majesty has dedicated her life in service to the Commonwealth. Since acceding to the throne in 1952, she has served with grace, strength, and wisdom. Canadians feel a warm affection for the Queen and a deep appreciation for her devotion to duty.
Commonwealth Leaders from around the world met with her this past week. It was clear that the affection and admiration so many feel is equally shared by people from every corner of the world.
So today, we celebrate the many milestones of Canadian history, in which the Queen played an important role. These include the 100th anniversary of the Fathers of Confederation’s meeting in Charlottetown in 1964, Canada’s centennial ceremonies in Ottawa in 1967, and the signing of the Proclamation of the Constitution Act on Parliament Hill in 1982. Through change and transformation, Her Majesty has stood with Canadians, unwavering in her commitment to Canada’s future. Her role as protector of the realm has been magnificently fulfilled.
We wish Her Majesty a happy 92nd birthday.
