 Mayor Crombie’s Victoria Day Statement

 “On behalf of the great City of Mississauga and Members of Council, I join with all residents to celebrate Victoria Day.

“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.

“Canadians have a profound respect for our constitutional monarchy, and the important role this institution has played in our nation’s history, and toward shaping our country’s active and respected place in the world.

“On this day, let us also once again congratulate the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their second baby and daughter, Princess Charlotte. This is truly a joyous occasion.

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