LETTERS: Monarchy is an archaic, elitist body

Re: Councillor to pay false allegiance (Letters, Nov. 7)

I am of British descendency but like Coun. Tony St-Pierre I cannot swear allegiance to the Queen.

The monarchy is an archaic, elitist body which I believe cannot truly represent a democratic structure. We are a nation unto ourselves made up of citizens of many nationalities. I expect our citizen’s allegiance to be to Canada as a nation.
