Taneen Rudyk, president of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM), issued the following statement following the news of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

On behalf of municipal leaders across the country, FCM joins Canadians today in mourning the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, Canada’s head of state and a figure who was intertwined with our national history for almost a century.

“The Queen led a life devoted to the service of the public and the Commonwealth. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family and the people of Britain as they remember and celebrate the life of a remarkable woman.”

The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) unites more than 2,000 local governments at the national level, representing more than 90 per cent of Canadians in every province and territory.
