Mon, Sept 19th will be Federal Holiday to mourn Queen Elizabeth II

Next Monday, September 19th, will be a federal holiday to mourn Queen Elizabeth the Second on the day of her state funeral at Westminster Hall in London.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made the announcement today in St. Andrews, New Brunswick, where the Liberal caucus is meeting.

Trudeau says he and the opposition leaders’ offices are also working on a final list for the delegation that will attend the Queen’s funeral in person.

A military transport plane is carrying the monarch’s coffin from Scotland to London, where she will lie in state before the funeral.
