I'm happy with Canada's monarchy and I love my Queen and will mourn her passing. I don't want anything to "happen" to our monarchy when the Queen dies and I don't see any reason why it should change upon her death.

Long live the Queen!

Status quo would be ok with me just a new monarch will suffice.

I don't dislike the Queen but would welcome a change once she is no longer there.

Though I won't hold my breath. Nothing will change in Canada.

I don't want to start this debate again but it would be nice if we had a Canadian as a head of state. (Yes, I know our laws say the Queen is "Canadian".)

Our current set-up is not the only one that's out there and not necessarily optimal either.

The monarchy is no threat to Canada and is a wonderful part of our tradition. I hope they remain so. My only issue might be with a specific monarch .. I certainly would hate to see Prince Charles in the role of king so long live the Queen, please!

I agree.

There is no reason to change anything. I would be happy to accept any Queen or King that the UK determines to have.

Also, let's stop this "why do we need a a monarchy" again for the 88th time before it starts again.


Love Live the Queen!

By the way, Canada should form some sort of trade agreement with the post brexit UK. It that involves more freedom of movement, that would be fantastic.

There is nothing wrong with Charles. What horrible thing did he do? Don't tell me because he found a lover. If a regular person can divorce and remarry, so should a Prince.

No, that is not the reason - I don't care about that. It has to do more with his views on globalism and global warming, etc. with which I don't agree - even though I am sure all the Royal family has similar views .. I think he is more pedantic and outspoken about them than the Queen, or so far, his son. He also seems so very cold to me compared to both the Queen and his sons. His demeanor seems more haughty than regal to me. Personal opinion only though. But, I do have to say that I am his contemporary (and British born) and when I was a young girl, as many did in those days I am sure, I dreamed of someday meeting and marrying him. He just doesn't appeal to me now. I would rather see William be King. That said though, I also hope the Queen lives many years yet.
