Re: IS IT TIME TO ABOLISH THE MONARCHY? By Mandy Gardner
Mandy Gardner suggests, in her article Is It Time to Abolish the Monarchy, that by remaining a “willing member of the Commonwealth” Canada “retains an identity apart from the U.S.” I suggest that Canada establish an identity that is not encumbered with the remnants (psychological and physical) of a newly patriated country. To say no and live with the consequences is an important aspect of growing up.
Until Canada can say “no” without hiding behind Mother’s apron the country will continue searching for that elusive character known as the Canadian Identity.
