Queen packs it in

Queen Elizabeth II ended her high-profile, nine-day tour of Canada on Tuesday, flying to New York to address the United Nations for the first time since 1957 and to lay a wreath at Ground Zero, Agence France Presse reported. While in Canada, she visited Halifax, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Toronto and Waterloo. The Globe and Mail reported that there was only one security breach, when a woman approached with a black plastic bag and chatted with the Queen for a few minutes before being whisked away harmlessly.
