I think the people who are trying to get advertising for Canadian diamonds don't care how often it's worn.

A lot of money spent on a Canadian crown would be fuel for republicans. In a way, I like the symbolism of the idea; but I don't think it's feasible.

Its strange, but I was just thinking about this. I think that a Canadian State Crown would be a marvelous symbol of Royal Authority. The Sovereign would obviously be the only person to wear it, during our State Opening of Parliament it could be displayed before the Governor-General so to symbolize the authority of the Sovereign. I hear they do the same thing for the Opening of the Scottish Parliament.

While I don't see this Crown being made in the near-future. Where would it be kept? We don't exactly have a spare Tower of London lying around Ottawa, maybe at Rideau Hall, it is the Official Residence of the Sovereign. Or at Le Citadelle in Quebec City. It is a Fortress after all and a Residence of the Governor General.
