Mayor Crombie Marks Victoria Day Long Weekend 2016

“On behalf of the City of Mississauga and Members of Council, we join with all residents to mark the Victoria Day long weekend.

“Communities across Canada recognize Victoria Day, which pays tribute to the birth of Queen Victoria, Canada’s former long-reigning sovereign and head of state.

“On this day, let us also reflect on the longevity of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who celebrated her 90th birthday in April.

“The longevity of Her Majesty’s tenure is a testament to the important and enduring place the monarchy has as a respected institution in our parliamentary democracy.

“The relationship between the Crown and Canada’s communities continues to be one of respect and genuine affection.

“Once again, I would like to wish all Mississaugans a very safe, happy and memorable Victoria Day long weekend.”
