The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee

Today the Harper government announced plans to officially celebrate the upcoming diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. 

The Canadian government has unveiled a $7.5-million plan to celebrate next year’s 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s time on the throne, a moment hailed Tuesday by Heritage Minister James Moore as a “rare” chance to honour the 85-year-old monarch’s “dedicated service to our country,” and to give her subjects in Canada a refresher course on “the important role of the Canadian Crown.”

The conservative party is definitely putting historical and cultural institutions on the agenda in Ottawa.
