Edmonton, AB – Matt Jeneroux, Member of Parliament for Edmonton Riverbend, released the following statement on the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II:

“It is with a heavy heart that I learned of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. I want to express my deepest condolences to the Royal family.

“As a proud Commonwealth country, we grieve with unspeakable sadness the loss of our longest-reigning monarch and for many, including myself, the only Head of the Monarchy ever known. Her Majesty’s sense of duty to Canada was both deeply held and demonstrated in her actions.
