Royal Visits to Canada

In 1985, the Queen Mother visited Toronto and Saskatchewan. In a speech during that visit she said, "It is now some 46 years since I first came to this country with the King, in those anxious days shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War. I shall always look back upon that visit with feelings of affection and happiness. I think I lost my heart to Canada and Canadians, and my feelings have not changed with the passage of time."
