Monarchy lovers in Montreal?

Hello,
I am a journalist working for Agence France Presse (French Press Agency) and I am working on a story about the Monarchy and Quebec. I am currently looking for people living in Montreal and who love the royal family.
I would like to talk with them about the wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton and their visit to Canada (the first official trip of the couple).
Easy to find anti royal family in Montreal, not easy to find real fans of the Monarchy...
Thank you for your help,
Best Regards,

Fabrice Hoss

Odd that they refer to the Royal Family only in terms of being the British Royal Family, given that there are two future Kings of Canada and a "spare" in the collection.

Canada Post unveils stamps for royal wedding


There are domestic and international versions of the stamps and they'll be available to Canadians on April 29, the same day the royal couple exchange their vows at Westminster Abbey in the heart of London.

"We never issued a royal wedding stamp on the day of the event itself. We're thrilled that our team, our suppliers and partners were able to pull this off in mere weeks," Anick Losier, a Canada Post spokeswoman said.

Jean Chrétien offers Queen an election update - The Globe and Mail

Eleven Canadian prime ministers have served since the Queen took the throne, but it seems Jean Chrétien remains the royal favourite.

Seated at her side on Tuesday for lunch at Windsor Castle, Mr. Chrétien briefed the Queen on Canada’s latest election, while she took the opportunity to practice her French.

Kevin MacLeod remembers the first time he met the Queen. Or rather, he doesn’t.

MacLeod was a junior program officer at the Department of the Secretary of State during Queen Elizabeth II’s visit to Canada in 1987. He worked on the tour and even accompanied her back to Britain to finalize arrangements for a new Canadian heraldic authority.

I just read about this. Interesting news. I don't know how I feel about it yet or why this change was necessary at this time.

MacKay: Renaming military corrects 'historical mistake'

Canada's air force and navy will undergo a name change that honours the military's royal roots, Defence Minister Peter MacKay announced Tuesday.

Speaking in Halifax, MacKay said the Canadian air force, now officially named Air Command, will be renamed the Royal Canadian Air Force.

The navy, now called Maritime Command, will once again be known as the Royal Canadian Navy.
And the army, known as Land Force Command, will now be called the Canadian Army.

MacKay said the decision corrects a "historical mistake" that was made when the various branches of the military were renamed around 1970, with the word "royal" removed. CTV Edmonton - MacKay: Renaming military corrects 'historical mistake' - CTV News

As an American, I have to admit that the name changes in Canada reflects a very big sense of history. I don't think it deflects from Canada being its own unique republic but a country that has far reaching roots into history and is proud to show it. Over the years, the armed service that has mostly stood out for me when I think of Canada is its brightly clad Royal Canadian Mounted Police who "always get their man".

It may have absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with it but can anyone think of a better way to honor HM the Queen for her Diamond Jubilee? I'm willing to bet that she's tickled pink.

Well that's how the government is portraying it. I hope that's truly their intention and this isn't about undoing something their rivals (the Liberals) did nearly 30 years ago. Although I admit that this latest decision is completely in line with the present government's pro-monarchy stance.

Well, the Liberals aren't exactly their chief rivals at the moment.

But they have been historically...as is their ideology and that of a lot of people who aren't traditionalists or monarchists.
I can see where some of the criticism is coming from. I do feel that this is a political decision on the government's part, it'll win them some points with conservatives.

Incredibly sad news today

Death of the leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition

August 22, 2011

Message from His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, following the death of the leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition, the Honourable Jack Layton

OTTAWA— My wife, Sharon, and I join all Canadians in deeply mourning the loss of Jack Layton today.
As leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition, Mr. Layton was held in great esteem by Canadians for his passionate dedication to the public good. Throughout his career as a community leader and politician, he constantly strived to bring people together in the common cause of building a better Canada, and he did so with great energy and commitment. His fundamental decency and his love of our country serve as examples to us all, and he will be greatly missed.
We wish to extend our sincerest condolences to Mr. Layton's wife, Ms. Olivia Chow, and their family, friends and colleagues in this most difficult time. Our thoughts are with you.

Thanks for the link to His Excelleny's Statement Humera and sad news doesn't even cover it. This Country of ours lost a good man on Monday morning and one who truly cared about and for Canada and fought for Canada as well.

He is going to be deeply missed. :o(
