In Canada, Justin Trudeau refuses to question the monarchy after Elizabeth II’s death

Ahead of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday, September 18, refused to reopen a constitutional debate over the place of the British monarchy, whose sovereign is automatically Canada’s head of state.

“For me, it’s not a priority. It’s not even my intention to discuss.”The head of the Canadian government said in an interview with Radio-Canada in London. “Making such a profound change in the world’s best, most stable system is, to me, not a good idea right now”Determined Mr. Trudeau, notes “A Complicated and Complicated Moment”.

A former British colony that gained independence in 1867, Canada is a constitutional monarchy under the sovereignty of the United Kingdom. Charles III is now official “King of Canada”. With the death of Elizabeth II, the debate about the place of the monarchy was revived. According to an Ipsos poll conducted for Global News, 58% of Canadians want a referendum on whether to retain the crown. That’s a five-point increase over a year, according to the poll released Friday, which found only 44% of Canadians had a favorable opinion of Charles III.
