Her Majesty was incredibly attentive, as funny as she was kind and compassionate, and gracious beyond words. There could be hundreds of people in the room, but she made you feel as if you were the only person she wanted to speak with.
The year of Canada's Sesquicentennial, I had the honour of meeting with The Queen - a memory that I will cherish for the rest of my life.
With great sorrow, I send my condolences to The Royal Family. I join Canadians in mourning the loss of Canada's longest-reigning Sovereign, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, Queen of Canada.
Together, we honour her life of service to Canada, the Commonwealth, and the world.
We acknowledge the land that the community of Spadina-Fort York and which the Office of Kevin Vuong, M.P. operates on has for thousands of years been the traditional territory of many Nations, including the Chippewa, the Anishnabeg, the Huron-Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, the Mississaugas of the Credit, and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. Our Office acknowledges that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaties signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands.
