A new poll finds the number of Canadians who want to drop the monarchy at the highest level in 12 years. Close to half or 45 percent say they prefer an elected head of state instead of the Queen…when considering Canada’s constitution.
One in four would like to see Canada remain a monarchy, 19 percent say they don’t care and 13 percent are undecided. The Research Company poll also noted that only 22 per cent want to see Prince Charles become King after the Queen dies or abdicates, while 35 per cent said they’d rather see Prince William ascend to the throne.
The Queen is currently the head of state in 16 countries.
