The Queen of England

Post by ironmanca »

Personally , I think it's absolutely rediculous that we have a "foreigner" on our currency.

She's not a "foreigner", Canada is a Constitutional Monarchy and part of The Commonwealth. Other than our coins, she's on the $20 bill and thats it:

And I'd also like to know, is she coming to Kelowna?

Another item that could be done by opening up the Canadian Constitution, then we would be similar to India.
They are still part of the Commonwealth, the Queen no longer has any thing to do with there Parliament.

Well we have a loon on our currency, so why not a foreigner?

I don't care who I'd Head State in Canada. That woman is not Canadian. Queen, commonwealth , means nothing. You think Canadians get any sort of benefit from being commonwealthough , nope. Nothing, but she has everything to gain.., its called money. She is useless. Totally and utterly.

I disagree. Her being our Queen provides us with priceless entertainment at the expense of those who get so triggered by the Monarchy

I wonder which would provide the largest benefit for citizens of the current Commonwealth?

    A. The monarchy as it currently exists
    B. Liquidating the assets of the royal family (including future payments) and establishing a charitable foundation/trust to distribute the proceeds.

Unless something has changed that I'm not aware of...she pretty much owns the place. Even if you 'own' land- it's still hers. You have the privilege to borrow the top 6 inches of it if your farming it from her when you 'own' it. You also get to pay taxes for borrowing it from her. If the shirt on your back was purchased with Canadian currency...I think she owns the shirt.
Some may view my politically incorrect opinions as harsh and may be offended by them. Some think political correctness will be our undoing.

From that video OKkayak posted, seem they've been nipping
the gin pretty good.
They keep repeating themselves.
