While about 80 per cent of respondents agreed that the monarchy had an important place in Canada’s history, a majority also felt it was out of step with the times. More than 60 per cent felt that a constitutional monarchy was outdated.
Uh, yeah, our system is way outdated and due for a change.
And will this happen in my lifetime?
All of the provinces would have to agree to a Constitutional Amendment that would effectively make Canada a Republic.
The provinces cannot even agree on time zone standards, so how can they be expected to see eye to eye on something like that! As long as federal government after federal government continues to decentralize the nation’s power away from the centre and toward the regions, little progress is likely to be made on major structural changes in our political system.
Like ’em or not, we’re likely stuck with these inbred nincompoops for a long time to come.
