LETTER: Royal connections still have value for Canada

Editor:

Cognizant of the opposite view, I want to put an oar in the current for retaining the monarchy. And for many reasons – stability, economics, history.

Are we not independent, as is? Of course. Only tortured minds would think otherwise. Would the turmoil and division of electing a president be preferential to a constitutional monarchy, trained in, and conversant with, its duties?

Changing of the Royal Guard in Ottawa attracts tourists from all over, especially from the USA. Other incidents of displayed regalia bring money to the various regions. History is important as it links the current with former norms, tracing normalcy through the times, accommodated with parliamentarian approval of changes as required.

What I find striking is that, to my mind, our cousins to the south appear to suffer more oppression under presidents than they did under George III, who at least had the excuse of being mentally ill, unlike Trump.

Canada is respected practically the world over.

Let it continue to be so.
