LETTER: Shame on Canada for ignoring Queen’s milestone

Where were the celebrations and crowds and people cheering on the most celebrated event ever?

Editor:

What happened to the Canada I grew up in? Earlier this month, Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II celebrated 70 years on the throne.

She has represented many Commonwealth countries, ours being one of them.

So, where were the celebrations and crowds and people cheering on the most celebrated event ever?

The Queen is on our currency and is our queen. I am so ashamed of our lack of respect in Canada.

We celebrate all other national events in our country and provinces but we do not bother with one of our most valuable treasures, Queen Elizabeth II.

How dare people criticize what they clearly do not know? They demonstrate their ignorance of what the monarchy stands for and gives us as a nation.

I grew up as supporting the Royal Family, and will continue to in spite of Canada’s disrespect.

Shame on Canada.

Leslie Davison, White Rock
