Or else people pick up ideas about government and the law from American dramas and assume that it's the same here.

That too. I can't remember who said this but there are three things that differentiate Canada from the USA:

1) Health Care
2) French
3) The Crown

2) Polls relating to the monarchy in Canada are naturally skewed because of Quebec where the vast majority of the population is anti-monarchy.

That being said, the actual concern is that the majority of Canadians don't know how the government works in this country. There is total apathy with all our national institutions.
I agree about the apathy. Canadians don't nearly have the pride in their government that the U.S. does, IMO. With regards to your other two points, I agree with number 2 (Quebec is disproportionately anti-monarchist, for obvious reasons) but not necessarily number 1. Maybe younger Canadians support the monarchy, but they certainly don't know much about it. My friends and I are mostly at the upper end of the 18-24 age group, and I guarantee you none of them have anything more than the vaguest idea that Prince Charles and Camilla are making a visit to Canada. C & C are supposed to visit the city I live in, and I don't think anyone I know would be interested enough to go and see them--and these are people who mostly follow media headlines every day and know what's going on with the government, because they work for the government. They just wouldn't be interested in the royals.

P.S. Just for fun, maybe I will ask some of my friends tonight what they know about this royal visit...for all I know they might pleasantly surprise me!

Talking Where can I go?

Hi! Does anyone here know how I can find out specifically when Charles and Camilla are going to be in Montréal and where/if there would be a walkabout? I desperately want to go to see them if there is some sort of "walkabout".

(Oh and to fuel the discussion about Canadians not caring about the Royal family...I am American and my roommate is Canadian and she neither knew nor cared about C&C coming and we are both 23.)

Oh, this is so exciting! And to think that the Queen may come here next year!!!

Well I haven't seen anything on the news yet saying that they are coming so Its not hard now knowing that they are coming. And you cant care for someone that you know nothing about. Unfortunately, the media only seems to report about pretty young things and gaffes so Canadians have no idea about Charles and his causes. But I am hoping this visit sparks some interest. And I'm sure the Diamond Jubilee and William getting married sometime in the future will also spark huge interest in the royal family.

First an Olympic upset, and now a royal disappointment.The Newfoundland children's choir that was caught in a dispute over the 2010 Winter Games has cancelled its performance for Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.

Does anyone know if they'll allow the public to see them at the Olympic Village I might try to see them there if we're allowed.

The heir to the British throne, Prince Charles, will visit Niagara College next week with his wife Camilla. The Prince of Wales will commemorate his Nov. 5 visit to Niagara College's new Wine

Six in 10 Canadians support Prince Charles as future king

Two days before the Prince of Wales and his wife begin their royal tour of Canada, a new poll for Canwest News Service and Global National says almost six in 10 Canadians, or 57 per cent of those surveyed, believe Charles should become king after the death of Queen Elizabeth, rather than pass the crown to his son, Prince William.

I grew up surrounded by vineyards and wineries. It's not all frozen tundra here!

It is looking hopeful.


The public is being encouraged -- and accommodated -- to come out to see the Prince of Wales and his wife when they make two stops in Hamilton on Thursday.
The front grounds of Dundurn Castle will be open for the public when Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, pay a morning visit to the York Boulevard landmark. The duchess is the great-great-great-granddaughter of its builder and laird, Sir Allan MacNab, and it will be her first visit to the castle


TheSpec.com - Local - Public invited to attend this week's royal visits


Canadian tour Next week's visit by Charles and Camilla won't generate the kind of frenzy seen during the Diana era. That's not fair, monarchy watchers say

What royal treatment?

Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, Canada and sundry countries is 83 years old. God bless her, and long may she reign over us – after which Canada should cut its ties to the British monarchy.

No offence, Prince, but our ties to the monarchy should end - The Globe and Mail

"I can hardly believe that this is my fifteenth visit and I am greatly looking forward to introducing my wife to a country and a people which are very dear to my heart. For her part, my wife could not be more pleased to investigate the origins of one branch of her own family.

Conflicting stories

Charles and Camilla will toast wine center : City & Region : The Buffalo News

Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont., is set to roll out the burgundy carpet Thursday for Britain’s Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Residents hoping to catch a glimpse of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, during a royal visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake Thursday will have to settle for the Prince of Wales alone.

Anyone have any idea who exactly I should call to let me know about the public visiting the Olympic village when they come? My dad said it's not even finished the actual building but if it's not ready I don't get what they're going to see. I'm just so confused about that. And I wish they gave a specific time too.

With the Royals visiting, you can bet there'll be a whole lot of shakin' going on.
The recent H1N1 outbreak won't be stopping Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, from pressing flesh during their 12-city tour across Canada beginning today, confirms Clarence House.

They are going to see the Olympic Village under construction and have the various facilities and 'green' innovations explained to them.
It's not unusual for people who are interested to have a look at large construction projects before they are completed.

Ah that makes more sense, thanks Warren. I wish they hadn't blocked off the road leading to the Olympic Village starting today, now I have no idea how to even get down there. My mom said if worst comes to worst she'll take me to see Camilla down at Botanical Gardens but I'd like to see both of them together.
