Canada and the Crown
Political consultant Steve LaFleur denies that it is time for Canada to cut her links with the Crown. My favourite observation of his is that "[g]overnment doesn’t exist to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to be a President. It exists to enforce the rule of law." Exactly. I don't think I've ever seen that particular point stated so concisely before. While I don't think that "the royal family is arguably more profligate than necessary," otherwise this is a valuable and insightful article.
