Liberals to Consider Cutting Ties with Monarchy

At their Jan. 13-15 policy convention in Ottawa, Liberals will vote on the following resolution:

"Be it resolved that the Liberal Party of Canada urge the Parliament of Canada to form an all party committee to study the implementation of instituting a Canadian head of state popularly elected and sever formal ties with the British Crown."

The resolution was put forward by the Young Liberals of Canada. They note that "Canada is a multicultural nation, built by people from many diverse backgrounds and where at present no Canadian citizen can ever aspire to be head of state of our own country."

Moreover, they say that "foreign law bars individuals not of the Anglican faith" from becoming the monarch, and Canadians pay more to maintain the monarchy than do the British.
