Barbados has parted ways with the Royal Family. Now, Canada should follow suit, writes columnist Max Fawcett.

Removing the last vestiges of colonial rule from Canada’s political system — and placing Canada’s Indigenous Peoples at the heart of any potential replacement — could have a […] transformative influence on our own future.

To my knowledge, replacing the Monarch is far easier than most probably believe.

Most people like Queen Elizabeth II but don’t like the next few royals. And when the monarch dies, Parliament decides who will succeed. I think it would be possible to have Parliament to never pass legislation to confirm a new Monarch or maybe, I’m not sure about this, to vest itself and the GG with the authority of the crown. Though this has to be vetted and OK with those who rely on the institution of the Crown.

It’ll be interesting for sure. It’ll be the first time the Canadian Parliament will be choosing its own head of state after the repatriation of the Constitution.

When the Queen dies, I’m fairly certain it is already decided that Prince Charles will succeed her.

Oh I hadn’t considered the inaction of Parliament as a way to rid ourselves of Monarchy, clever!

That won’t work, succession is automatic

What’s going on in Canada?
