As The Queen's representative in Canada, I am delighted to mark Commonwealth Day, which we have been celebrating for nearly 40 years. It is a day that reminds us that, like our fellow Canadians, the people of the Commonwealth recognize all that we have in common while embracing the rich diversity of languages and cultures.
As we draw closer to the festivities surrounding the 150th anniversary of Confederation, I invite all Canadians to make the most of this special day to reflect on how Commonwealth countries are working to make this a smarter, more caring world.
