Mr. Cohen writes in today's Ottawa Citizen the same thing that I wrote about days ago in Post 1027: it is time to jetison the monarchy. Or at least take a cold hard look at the institution.
Now it is time to revisit the role of the monarchy, as Australia has, and to question its relevance today. This isn't denying our roots; understanding the past doesn't compel us to live there.
Well put Mr. Cohen.
He didn't take my idea though, the brilliant idea of having a lottery and picking a royal family that would be truly a Canadian Royal Family.
To placate the Monarchist League of Canada I think we should have a lotto with all Canadians names put in the hopper, we have a draw between the second and third period of the NHL All Star game and the winner becomes King or Queen of Canada and his/her heirs will succeed him/her.
Sure, it is random, but no more random than the House of Windsor.
