After Elizabeth II passes should the new monarch still represent Canada?


Do you feel that the ruler of England should be removed as a figure head of Canada after the passing of Queen Elizabeth II? Should Canada finally break free from England in this matter?

    Britain has no actual power over Canada - it is merely a traditional position of respect. Which is why the question raises if there is a point once the Queen passes along, or if we should go our own way and reform politically for a more modern take.

    I would like to put forward that I have no actual opinion on this matter either way, which is why I ask. I think it's a very interesting question. Canada makes all of their own decisions, and we basically only have them as a figure head.

    It's not really about this at all, it's only about keeping an archaic figure-head type relationship once the respectable monarch has passed.

    It depends, since it is a matter of respect - would you respect the new leader as the face of Canada? If you're a citizen. It's just an interesting topic.

    I look at the whole world objectively. At the core level of existence. If you do, the question answers itself.

    I'm asking this as a Canadian citizen. They have no real power on Canada and I want to know if people (mostly our citizens but others too) believe we should keep their name on the building out of respect, so to speak.

    "...monarch should allow..." Queen Elizabeth is putting up no barriers in relation to Australia nor, I suspect, Canada. She rules through Parliament..... the people decide ultimately.

    I have nothing against the queen, which is why my focus does not say "should we remove the queen as figure head of Canada" My question focuses on whether or not the new monarch should be given this position too, or if we should move on when she does.

    I am a Canadian, and I was sort of hoping it would be Canadians who would answer.
