Abolish the Monarchy in Canada
The British monarchy is a sexist, racist, homophobic, religiously xenophobic, anti-democratic wealth concentrating institution.
If it is important enough to recognize Quebec as a nation in the Canadian constitution, than surely it is important enough to abolish to monarchy from Canada.
About 20,000 french speaking Catholic Acadians were deported because they refused to pledge allegiance to the King, head of the Church of England.
Out of respect for the surviving Acadians, for the millions of Canadian Catholics, for the members of the United Church of Canada (Canada's largest Protestant Church), for the Canadian Jews and Muslims and for Aboriginals; Out respect for our Irish, Scottish and Welsh ancestors; Out of respect for the millions of Canadians that believe one should work for one's wealth, not have it inherited; Out of respect for democracy and the equality of women; Out of respect for homosexuals, and, indeed, out of respect for the members of the Anglican Church of Canada; Let's get the British Monarch, head of the Church of England, out of the Canadian constitution.
And if we realise that modifying the constitution to recognize Quebec as a nation is to much trouble, then at least let's get rid of the monarchy where we can, without modifying the constitution.
