The City of Timmins is officially marking the the death of Queen Elizabeth II, says corporate communications coordinator Amanda Dyer
“Immediately at the time of her passing, City Hall flags and flags at all municipal bu9ildings were lowered to half mast.” That’s where they’ll stay until sunset on the day of Elizabeth’s memorial service.
There’s also a condolence book at City Hall.
“Our community is welcome to come in and sign it,” Dyer notes.. “It’s available at Service Timmins during regular business hours, so Monday to Friday, 8:30 to 4:30.”
The book will be sent to the Royal Family.
“Moving forward, on September 13th at the next council meeting, council will observe a moment of silence in honour of the Queen” adds Dyer, “and then as well will wait for information on the new official portrait of the King, and have that replaced in Council Chambers.”
Queen Elizabeth never visited Timmins, but her sister, the late Princess Margaret did in the 1980s, when she toured the Kidd Mine.
