If the concern about her support for the monarchy is based solely on the fact that she is a francophone From Quebec, the assessment is unfair. She has taken a position that requires her to uphold the constitution so unless she has no personal ethics she us supporting the monarchy. Whether she has espoused different views in the past ( which has not been reported in theses posts) is moot.

The GG’s personal views are really irrelevant anyway. The Government of Canada’s position is monarchy. It the position of the opposition, in fact almost all federal politicians are publicly monarchists or at least neutral. Very few ever get in front of a camera and say off with the Queen’s head.

No PM is going to open this issue up unless they are clubbed over the head 100 times and even then it’s a non starter.

So unless there is a revolution and the people storm Parliament Hill and Rideau Hall, I don’t see the monarchy going anywhere. It’ll die on the vine before it’s ever abolished.

For those unfamiliar with the case, it isn’t going anywhere.

Quote:
The Quebec Court of Appeal is set to begin reviewing a case on Monday that challenges the rules governing the ascension to the British throne, and the result could have political consequences in Canada.

If the appeal is successful, the challenge could force Ottawa to undertake a round of constitutional negotiations, according to lawyers behind the suit.

The two law professors from the Universite de Laval are trying once again to get Canada’s law on royal succession declared unconstitutional.

Did you know Canada's Great Seal depicts an enthroned Elizabeth II as Queen of Canada & is the official governmental seal used on proclamations and for the appointment of cabinet ministers, senators, and judges. #KnowCanada #cdnpoli #cdncrown #cdnhist

The Queen has sent her condolences to the people of Canada.

“Prince Philip and I were saddened to hear word of the crash involving the Humboldt Broncos hockey team.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have lost so much, with their families and with all Canadians who grieve with them at this difficult time.”

Victoria Day, the last Monday before May 25, is synonymous with the start of summer. It’s one example of how Canada’s first queen has left her stamp on Canada, with communities from coast to coast bearing her name — from Victoria, B.C. in the west to Nova Scotia’s Victoria County in the east.

This week, all Canadian representatives of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, The Queen of Canada (the Governor General & provincial Lieutenant Governors) met in Fredericton, New Brunswick. These 11 Governors represent the Canadian Crown in their own jurisdiction.

I read that, in 1957, the Queen made an official visit to the United States as Queen of Canada, rather than Queen of the United Kingdom. If a foreign country wanted to receive a visit from Canada , wouldn't the invitation be normally sent to the Governor General instead ? Further details would be appreciated.




EDIT: BTW, I checked an official site from the US State Department and Queen Elizabeth II is actually listed in 1957 as a visitor "from the United Kingdom" although Canadian PM Diefenbaker is listed as having accompanied the Queen. It looks like, for Americans, even for the State Department, it is difficult to differentiate between the Queen of Canada and the Queen of the UK as two separate legal persons.

Mr Singh seems to be slightly confused about systems of government. At one point , he says he thinks “ Canada should be a state” as that “makes sense”. What does he mean exactly by that ? Isn’t Canada a sovereign state already ?

As Canada’s Parliament begins renovations in 2019, the Senate will meet in the Government Conference Centre. In the interim The Queen has gifted two throne chairs, made from wood from her Windsor Great Park, while Canada’s Throne & Senate Chamber are restored. #cdnpoli #cdncrown

In Canada, unlike the USA, there is a distinction between the head of government (Prime Minister) & head of state (The Queen). While The Queen holds executive power, she lends her authority to those elected to form a government and make laws in her name. #cdnpoli #cdncrown

This has to be the best stamp ever with HM on it. It has the Queen wearing my favorite accessory that she has. Her wonderful smile.

Each day before a sitting in Parliament or a provincial legislature in Canada, The Crown (through the Mace) is paraded into the chamber, illustrating The Queen of Canada granting her authority for the elected chamber to meet. #cdnpoli #cdncrown
