Canadian republic advocates hope new government has less ‘loyalty to royalty’

There is little chance that the future of the monarchy in Canada will come up this Friday when the new Liberal government of prime minister Justin Trudeau outlines its legislative program in the “speech from the throne” delivered by the governor general – the equivalent of the Queen’s speech in Westminster.

But a new generation of Canadian republicans is hoping the Liberals will soon abolish the oath as the first step on a new path to abolishing the monarchy itself.

    The question isn’t royalty, it’s which royalty.

    I am sure he wants to make it a homegrown one, with the House of Trudeau.

    This is an excellent article about Prince Charles of Arabia from the Middle East Quarterly:

    Frankly, distancing ourselves from the rather pro-Muslim royal family might not be a bad thing.
