I know a guy, 50 years old, born in Canada around 1970, now on "disability" CPP - he receives $1200/month - living well in Asia.

I know a woman, born abroad, who chose to live in Canada, simply to be here - to get a Cdn passport.

What is a "Canadian citizen"?

I agree that the monarchy is a bit of a clown-show, but the biggest threat to democracy from a Canadian POV is our state-controlled media.  The extent to which our media protects Trudeau and demo

Anyone who: a. was born in Canada b. passes the criteria for citizenship according to law, and swears to bear true allegiance to Her Majesty the Queen of Canada and her Heirs and successors.

b. passes the criteria for citizenship according to law, and swears to bear true allegiance to Her Majesty the Queen of Canada and her Heirs and successors.

c. there are other circumstances regarding parents being Canadian but you should consult with a legal professional for details. I'm just a simple potter.

Bahahahaha

I have a Canadian passport but would never, ever, bear allegiance to the Queen and the British Crown. Canadians are just subjects being the property of the Canadian government. Most Quebecers do not care at all about the Queen, but are Canadians on paper.

I'm a Canadian citizen.  I got my first passport in 1987 and I still want Great Britain to get more medals than Canada at the Olympics.  I would want England to beat Canada at ice hockey, too.

National identity is a weird thing.  You don't get to choose it.

I do appreciate all the space though.

And yet Quebec has fielded some of the finest soldiers During WWI, And WWII and Korea ....fighting under the Queens Colors such as the Royal 22 Infantry Regiment (vandoos)  and still populates  some of the most decorated Military units within Canada. And they do it with pride, and honor.

Canada is not governed nor has any legal connection in any way whatsoever to the British Crown.  Our Crown is called the Canadian Crown, and our Queen's official title is "Queen of Canada".  Don't worry, you're not a British subject.

You're a Canadian by title only.  You abuse all of the rights and privileges of citizenship for selfish gain while spitting on the main responsibility we ask of you:  allegiance.

You would not be a Canadian citizen if were Prime Minister.  All of the rats would be exposed in writing and for the public to view.  Nobody would get a passport or a vote without swearing true allegiance to Canada and denouncing all foreign loyalties and allegiances each and every time.  All foreign citizenships would be revoked.

Maybe one day the rats would be exposed, and the liars of the oath jailed as traitors or else kicked out.  Count yourself lucky that most of our politicians are far more cowardly than I.  Carry your passport well, it is property of the Queen you disavow.

Long live the Queen of Canada.

I took the oath.  Ice hockey and the Olympics weren't mentioned, if I remember correctly.

I live on Indian land; I guess I have to swear allegiance to the hereditary chiefs.  But something tells me those chiefs care as much about the queen as the queen cared about them.

I agree. But I also wonder sometimes, as an outsider of course, if those chiefs care as little about you as they care about her. What is your opinion?

If you want to become a citizen in Switzerland you need to immigrate legally and then be a resident for ten years first. In Canada it's three of the last five years. So you can be bouncing back and forth, and do not have to make a commitment to live here permanently. And by the way, we don't keep track of people when they leave. So we'll trust your word.

Which means, particularly with Chinese who simply want the passport as a kind of backup, as a just-in-case escape, that they'll send in the paperwork, show up (we do record when you arrive), and then leave for 'home' again. Three years later, after claiming you were here the whole time, you get your citizenship, can get your passport, and then file it away in your desk drawer 'just in case'.  Companies like Marcus' will help you out with that.

Most western Canadians are even less fond of Trudeau than Quebecers are of the Queen, by a large margin.

If western Canada was to separate though, I couldn't care less if we severed ties with the commonwealth. The young royals are bobbleheads at best. I'd be embarrassed to have Charles or William as 'our King' lol.

Understandable, given you're a guy who worships Trump. I mean, intelligent, educated, sophisticated people probably give you the willies.

More to the point... public political discussion has been debased to the level of celebrity chatter.

"I don't LIKE the royals" says the teenager as he sucks on a vape... and when he votes that will be the criteria he uses - eschewing any kind of analysis of economic, traditional, political or cultural costs/benefits.

These are the adults of today (and I used a 'figurative' not a literal teenager in my example).  And this is why I call myself a conservative.   Conservative traditions and values allow for acknowledgment of trade-offs, sacrifice, and the value of our traditions.

"I don't like Trudeau" "I don't like the Queen" "I don't like socialists" "I don't like racists" turns serious discussion into consumer choice, where every difficult decision becomes the Pepsi challenge.

We can't take the vote away from these people, so we should insulate them into their own hives and seal them off.

Meanwhile, the military swears allegiance to a foreign Queen and her successors instead of to Canada or to Canadians...
