Canadian Confederation Anniversary Message

I was so hoping that we'd kick off the new year with an appearance by The Queen at Sandringham for church, but it was not to be; still suffering from her cold, she stayed home. (Just an abundance of caution and she's doing better, they say.) We do, however, have a new message from her:

The Queen sent a message of congratulations to the people of Canada on the 150th anniversary of Confederation.

Obviously recorded at the same time as her Christmas broadcast, Her Maj made sure to swap out brooches for the always appropriate Maple Leaf Brooch. It's nice to see her wear this one again; we haven't seen it on her since 2012.
