Monarchy should pay its own way

I hope that Canada becomes a free and sovereign dominion of its own.

I hope that Canada becomes a free and sovereign dominion of its own. The best time for this would probably be when the Queen and Prince Charles die of natural causes.

In the meantime, I feel that as one of the richest families in the world, they should pay for their royal visits out of their own pockets; airfare (Canadian Forces), hotel, food, security and the extra police costs, especially in a recession.

People who claim to be true supporters of the royal family can send cash, cheque or money order to Buckingham Palace on top of mandatory taxes.

I hope for a peaceful, lawful separation from Britain some day.

We can still be friends, but a foreign head of state is not a great idea, because we have different values.
