The Monarchy Is Holding Canada Back
Paul Heinbecker, Globe and Mail
Fealty to the British monarchy is an anachronism and a drag on Canadian foreign policy that confuses many and delivers little. It is time to turn the page on Buckingham Palace. Doing so need not disavow our history nor disrespect the Queen. It would acknowledge how far we have evolved as a society since the sun set on the British Empire and how far apart we and the monarchy have grown, a distance destined to increase when royal succession happens.
