Canada, drop the monarchy!
Target: Government of Canada
Petition Background (Preamble):
A monarchy is a government headed by royalty and in Canada, that's the Queen. A new study says the monarchy and the British crown costs Canadians $34 million dollars a year. The money is partly used to pay for Royal visits like the one happening in October when the Queen is coming. We think the money would be better spent on other things. Last Friday (October 4th, 2002), John Manley declared that abandoning the monarchy when the queen's reign ends would be a better thing for Canada. That's great, however we want it to happen RIGHT NOW!
We, the undersigned, agree to ask the Canadian government in Ottawa to drop the British monarchy and crown which is getting more and more expensive every year. We all agree to say that this money could be better used. WE WANT CANADA TO DROP THE MONRACHY RIGHT NOW.
