Oakville residents wishing to express their condolences on the passing of Queen Elizabeth II can do so now.

Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, with 70 years on the throne, Queen Elizabeth II died at the age of 96 at Balmoral Castle with her family by her side on Thursday (Sept. 8).

Local residents can honour the life of the Queen by leaving a message on either of the Government of Canada’s online book of condolences or the Royal Family’s official condolences website.

Queen Elizabeth II visited Oakville back in 2002.

“Oakville residents and Canadians appreciate her tireless work during her historic reign,” Oakville Mayor Rob Burton said in a statement released Thursday.

Flags at town facilities will remain at half-mast until sunset on the day of the memorial service for the Queen.
