Alberta Liberal Interim Leader John Roggeveen issues the following statement on the passing of Queen Elizabeth II:
Today is a sombre day in Alberta, Canada, and the Commonwealth. The passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the only Monarch most of us have known, is a sad occasion. In visiting Alberta five times over her lifetime, she was a positive force in our province. Acting through her representative, our Lieutenant Governor, the Queen was a critical part of our government and we all benefited from her lifetime of service. The Alberta Liberal Party extends its deepest sympathies to King Charles III and the entire royal family.
