During her visit for the CBC Television 50th Anniversary, Queen Elizabeth 11 and Tommy Hunter exchange greetings during the offical reception.

Tommy's 36 year television career was noted as "quite an achievement" by the Queen who congratulated Canada's country gentleman for his contribution to the CBC TV programming.

The Queen's Golden Jubilee and CBC Television's 50th Anniversary were simultaneous occurrences which provided the opportunity for Her Majesty and Tommy Hunter to meet in person.
