First interview of Trudeau since coronation as prime minister. Except instead of Peter Mansbrigde's soothing anchor's voice interviewing the PM, it's ten different Candians from varying backgrounds, from a 25 year old youth worker to an Inuit leader in his mid 60's

I don't have anything to say about this. I just wanted to let you know that the link in your signature doesn't work. You should probably fix that.
I don't have a signature. :-)

I would like to add that Canada is part of Her Majesty's Realm of nations, thereby making it the most enlightened, most progressive and greatest nation in the American continent. Canadians should be proud of their history and their institutions.

Now all we need to do is build a tunnel from Mexico to Canada and let the chuckles roll in.

We need to officially break all ties with Great Britain and the crown. There's no reason for our head of state to be a woman from a centuries old and outdated institution.

I understand people's concerns about the Monarchy, and truth be told it is quite outdated. I also think it's important to view the Monarchy as an institution, rather than as a group of people and the individuals therein. The Monarchy is vital to the preservation of the institution of parliamentary democracy and in fact guarantees it, which in my view is the best form of government. Having a President may not necessarily destroy that institution, but it could open the door up on other alternative forms of government. And I assume that the majority of Canadians support the parliamentary system of government.

Also, Canada is known as the 'Loyal Colony' - the one that didn't break away. Canadian identity is deeply rooted in its British history and its ties with Britain. To my mind, if Canada became a Republic, then it creates a blurry line of what Canada is.

I think that instead of abolishing the Monarchy, there's an argument to 'modernize' it. Canada has taken a step in this regard already by changing its national flag. One other thing that similar Dominion nations could do is to change references in the Constitution and in its laws of 'Her Majesty' or 'the Queen' to just simply 'the Sovereign'; this way it emphasizes the institution over the personality. Second, the oath of allegiance could be changed to something like "... to defend the Sovereign, the Constitution and the People of Canada...." This way, we are acknowledging the Sovereign, yes, but we're also swearing allegiance to the Constitution and its laws. This oath of allegiance would certainly more tolerable than the current one. Third, I think that by promoting indigenous cultures, Canada and other nations can strengthen a local identity by drawing on these native traditions: New Zealand is a brilliant example of this.

Finally, Republicanism is fine in theory, but history has taught us that it hasn't always been accompanied with progress and enlightenment. Look at the US, the so-called 'Republic'. When the US was embedded with slavery, many slaves escaped to Canada where they were completely shocked to discover how well they were treated, and not only that, the dignity and sense of worth they felt whilst in Canada. All of this may not be important from a practical perspective now, but in the grand scheme of things, that was a 'huge' deal; and that's something Canadians should be proud of.
