Queen Elizabeth was an example of service to all of us, particularly those of us elected to public office: Gordie Hogg

Surrey, B.C. (September 8, 2022): Surrey First mayoral candidate, and former Surrey MLA and MP, Gordie Hogg, says he and the Surrey First team will suspend campaigning today on news of the passing of Queen Elizabeth.

“For generations of Canadians, Her Majesty has been an example of selfless service, which makes today a very sad day for all of us,” said Hogg. “As a former city councillor, mayor, MP and MLA, I know that Queen Elizabeth demonstrated a work ethic and commitment to public service that set an example for all of us who seek to serve our communities, province and country. Queen Elizabeth’s 70 years as Canada’s constitutional head of state spanned generations and dramatic changes in society here at home and around the world. Throughout those seven decades and all those changes, Her Majesty provided continuity and stability, even as she reshaped the monarchy for modern times.”
