Town of Oliver flags lowered to half mast

The Town of Oliver joins in the mourning Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Flags at Town buildings and parks will be flown at half-mast until sunset on the day of the memorial service of Her Majesty the Queen, who passed away on September 8, 2022.

“On behalf Oliver Council and staff, I would like to share deepest condolences on the passing of Canada’s longest-reigning Sovereign, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, said Mayor Martin Johansen.  Our thoughts are with the King and all the members of the Royal Family at this sad time”.

The Monarch, who marked seven decades on the throne gave Royal assent that Oliver was the Wine Capital of Canada during her 2002 Golden Jubilee Tour of Canada.  The Regional District trademarked the branding in 2004, and Oliver has since re-trademarked to Canada’s Wine Capital.
