TORONTO -- A new poll has found that the desire among Canadians to drop the monarchy is at the highest level recorded in the past 12 years.
The poll, conducted by Research Co., found that 45 per cent of Canadians surveyed said they would prefer to have an elected head of state instead of the Queen, when considering Canada's constitution.
In a press release issued Monday, Research Co. noted that this preference is at a "historic level," up 13 points compared to a similar poll conducted by the firm in February 2020.

The poll also noted that only 22 per cent of participants want to see Prince Charles, the first in line for the throne, become King after the Queen dies or abdicates, while 35 per cent said they would rather see Prince William ascend to the throne.
Among those Canadians who said they would like the monarchy to continue, 47 per cent reported that they would prefer Prince William as the future King to Prince Charles (39 per cent).

On one hand it seems strange to have a head of state who lives and works 4000 to 7000km away (Canada is 3k wide). But on the other hand, very few people see and interact with their HoS. It is always a distant and invisible figure. At least the monarch's image or the crown logo is on all the currency and in every place throughout the country. It is a level of saturation that no democratic HoS can reach.

Currency is fast disappearing because of electronic payment, post stamps are fast disappearing because we write no letters anymore and parcels come with barcode stamps, except we come less and less in post offices, municipalities, police stations because the state services are accessible via an app on our phones.

I speak from my own experience but I can not imagine that in Canada and Australia, highly developed and technologized countries, this is different. No matter who is the Sovereign, there is no future for coins, banknotes, post stamps and digitalisation will bring state services to your (phone), so going to a stately building and seeing a portrait of the Sovereign in a marble hall will become rare too.
