Canada doesn't need a king!

Canada doesn’t need another British royal in our highest office. We’re a self-assured, independent nation and its time we administered our own office of head of state.

Our current head of state, Queen Elizabeth II, is 90 years old and when she passes on, as things stand, we’ll simply be handed her son, Prince Charles, as our next head of state- for life.

Republic Now, a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization, wants a democratically selected Canadian to be our next head of state!

 To raise awareness that an ideal opportunity to Canadianize and democratize our highest office is approaching, Republic Now is launching a bold transit-advertising campaign with the slogan:
“Canada doesn’t need a king!  Democracy, not monarchy.”

We will be putting banners on buses in Canadian cities to spread this relevant and timely message and we need your support to get it onto as many buses as possible.

Please donate generously. Your contribution will help bring democratic reform to our highest office!

British/Canadian Monarch is Head of the Church of England. Interesting. This is another reason to abolish the monarchy. "Atheism leaves a man to sense, to philosophy, to natural piety, to laws, to repudiation; all of which may be guides to an outward moral virtue, even if religion vanished; but religious superstition dismounts all of these and erects an absolute monarchy in the minds of men." - Francis Bacon
