A Minimalistic Approach to Severing the British Royal Family from Canada’s Constitution
In a survey conducted prior to the Queen’s passing, 51 percent of respondents affirmed that the country “should not remain a part of the monarchy in coming generations.” While 55 percent of those surveyed supported the country continuing as a constitutional monarchy so long as the Queen reigned, only 34 percent expressed the same once Charles was to become King. Time will tell whether this general apprehension about Charles III will continue, but given the negative public standing of the new King and the monarchy in general, the question is bound to arise: how can the British royal family be removed from Canada’s constitutional architecture?
