Police have notified the public that there will be a 21-gun salute in Toronto today.

According to police, the salute will take place at Queen’s Park at approximately 1:40 pm and there is “no need for concern.”

While Police say it’s a 21-gun salute, the National Defence has said the salute will only involve 15 guns.

The salute will occur in recognition of Her Honour the Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, who is delivering the Speech from the Throne.

This speech will open the first Session of the 42nd Parliament of Ontario.

However, the public isn’t reacting well to this news, as police have already informed the public of a potential safety risk involving the GTA.
