CANADA – Lecturer at Carleton University in Ottawa and specialist in the role of the kingdom, says Philippe Lagasse, citizen support for the kingdom is dwindling.
“Even in Canada, an English-speaking country, support for the monarchy is decreasing year by year,” said Philippe Lagasse, quoted by VOA Indonesia, Saturday 09/10/2022.
According to a poll last April, a small majority of Canadians – up to 71% in the French-speaking province of Quebec – even want to give up the kingdom, whose role is now largely ceremonial.
Then, no less than 67% said they opposed Charles’ accession to the throne of England. His visit to Canada last May was hardly noticed.
Meanwhile, University of Quebec politics professor March Chevrier said that to follow in the footsteps of Barbados, which in 2021 chose to secede from the British Empire and become a republic, Canada must carry out major reforms of its institutions and its constitutional laws. .
“A founding principle of Canada in 1867 is that the Kingdom is the basis of all constitutional laws,” explains Chevrier.
