Regarding the Death of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II, Manitoba Government is Providing Changes

On September 9th, 2022, the Queen of the United Kingdom, Elizabeth II, passed away, leaving behind many things. In Canada, the day of the Queen’s funeral will become a national holiday, and her picture will remain on the $20 bill for the time being.

The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, commented on the death of Her Majesty saying “It was with the heaviest of hearts that we learned of the passing of Canada’s longest-reigning Sovereign, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. She was a constant presence in our lives – and her service to Canadians will forever remain an important part of our country’s history.”

Her Majesty’s death brought many changes to Canada, and each province will face different changes. For Manitoba, the government will be limiting announcements and social media activities. The flags across the province were half-masted for some time, and black ribbons were placed on the Canadian and Manitoban flags in the Legislative Building.

Moreover, many courts across the country and in Manitoba will have to change their court systems. “In light of the sad news respecting the Queen’s passing, pursuant to s. Three of The Court of Queen’s Bench Act, the Court in name and in all documents and proceedings shall be designated and described as the Court of King’s Bench.” Manitoba Courts said. Also, Canadians’ passports will also have to be changed considering that the first states “in the name of Her Majesty the Queen.”

“I was saddened to learn today of the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. In 70 years as Queen, Her Majesty developed a special relationship with our province and Manitobans. On behalf of all Manitobans, I extend our sympathies to His Majesty King Charles III and the entire Royal Family.” The Premier of Manitoba, Heather Stefanson, announced after the Queen’s death.
