Queen on Walrus

Celebrate Canada Day with Stephen Marche's post-Brexit reflections in the Walrus on ending the monarchy in Canada:
Constitutional monarchy is an amazingly successful form of government all over the world. There are worse ways to organize government than to have an arbitrary celebrity at its head. But if the head of state is to be an empty symbol then at least the empty symbolism should apply. The royal family of England makes a pisspoor symbol for Canada as it stands.
