Queen Elizabeth’s funeral took place on Monday, Canada announces public holiday

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, organized the funeral queen elizabeth II as a federal holiday. Canada has declared a 10-day mourning period following the death of Queen Elizabeth II at her Scottish holiday home on Thursday.

Justin Trudeau says Queen Elizabeth is one of his favorite figures. He must attend the Queen’s funeral. “On September 19, Canadians across the country will honor Canada’s longest serving leader, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II,” Justin Trudeau said in a statement Tuesday, September 13, 2022.

“For most Canadians, Queen Elizabeth II is the only monarch we have ever known. Many of us feel deep affection and appreciation for the Queen’s dedication to Canada,” Trudeau said.

Monday will be a day off for all federal government employees. Other contractors, including state and local governments, are not required to follow the rules. .

The premiers of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador released a statement declaring Monday a day off. Ontario will have a day of mourning on Monday. Despite the holidays, schools will remain open, according to Premier Doug Ford, a Conservative. “Students are in school to learn about the many contributions Queen Elizabeth has made to the people of Ontario, Canada and across the Commonwealth,” Ford said.

Canada remained in the British Empire until 1982. Canada is still a member of the Commonwealth of Ancient Empires, which holds the head of the British monarchy as head of state.

The Trudeau Declaration was opposed by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business or CFIB. CFIB chief executive Dan Kelly said establishing a public holiday at Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral would be economically detrimental. “We urge the provincial government not to declare next Monday a (paid) holiday,” Kelly said on Twitter.

Minister of Labor Canada, Seamus O’Regan, said private sector employers were allowed to leave employees at the Queen’s funeral. However, the determination of the holiday is not required by the business world.
