Ontario’s 29th Lieutenant Governor
This year as I reflect on the holiday season, I turn to the traditional messages of our late Sovereign. Somehow she always found just the right words of comfort and joy. Her last holiday message began by saying: “Christmas can be hard for those who have lost loved ones.”
Prescient words, indeed. Particularly so given the loss of our beloved Queen of Canada. We felt a profound grief upon her passing, reflecting how ever present and familial she was to us all.
