In this video, Minister Rodriguez appears and says:
Today, we officially launch the Canadian celebrations of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee.
70 years ago today, a young Princess Elizabeth ascended to the Throne. Since that day, she has served as the Queen of Canada with unwavering dedication.
As Queen, she has visited Canada 22 times—more than any other Commonwealth country.
She bore witness as Canada grew into a modern nation that values diversity and inclusion. She shared in our triumphs and our sorrows, and her deep-seated affection for our country is clear. Queen Elizabeth has often said that she considers Canada home.
I’m proud to join people across the country in celebrating the Platinum Jubilee. And I encourage everyone to visit canada.ca to find out more about Her Majesty’s service and Canadian achievements over the past 70 years.
