Condolences are pouring in from across Halton and Burlington following today’s death of Canada’s monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.

The City of Burlington is flying its flags at half-mast and the city’s landmark pier will be lit white in recognition of her passing.

Burlington Mayor Marianne Meed Ward said the city will honour her life-long dedication to public service. “She was a true role model of steadfastness, having led for seven decades while displaying courage, dignity and grace.”

Other institutions passing on condolences and flying flags at half mast include the local school boards and Halton police.
