We offer our deepest condolences on the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The Queen lived a life committed to history and duty, but in addition, she was a wife, a mother, a grandmother, and a great-grandmother. There are many who will feel this loss deeply.
We recognize that people have differing opinions on the Royal Family and their role and influence on Canadian history. We hope that we can all respect the differences of opinion and allow people to reflect and mourn in their own way.
Sturgeon County will be sharing information on how people can honour her memory and pass along their condolences to the Royal Family.
Flags: Sturgeon County will be following Provincial Protocols with respect to the passing of a Monarch. This will include flying flags at all County facilities at half mast for the mourning period of 10 days. The flags will be at full mast for one day on the accession day of the King.
The Province has put together a list of resources of what happens next following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.
Books of condolence will be available online at Queen Elizabeth II memorial | Alberta.ca and in some provincial buildings throughout the province.
