So, given this demographic trend, the question that needs to be asked is how long are we going to hold onto a system of governance anchored in our days as a Dominion?
Our head of state, Queen Elizabeth, is, for an ever increasing percentage of the population, a foreign monarch. As the Canadian population becomes more and more diverse, does there come a point in time when the continued cultural grounding of the nation’s identity in one particular group identity become antiquated?
So, what happens when, in the near future, Queen Elizabeth’s reign comes to an end? This is the twenty-first century. The Commonwealth brings about little if any stirrings of patriotic sentiments. As a result, wouldn’t it seem rather odd that Prince Charles would become our new head of state?
Oh Canada, our home on native land.
