September 8, 2022

"The City of Courtenay joins the global community in mourning the loss of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Flags at City of Courtenay facilities have been lowered to half-mast.

Her extended reign over the Commonwealth for more than 70 years was remarkable in her sense of duty, fully dedicated to public service to the very end.

On this sad and historic day, our thoughts and sincere condolences are with the people of the United Kingdom, at home and abroad, including those living here in our community. Her passing marks the end of an era."
