candidate has replied to my survey. This
time it is Scott Aitchison who is the MP for
Parry Sound-Muskoka. As a refresher these
are the questions that were sent out:
1. What are your views on the monarchy?
2. As prime minister would you make use
of the Advisory Committee on Vice-Regal
Appointments that was active between
2010 and 2015?
3. In 2019 the government cancelled a program that mailed
physical copies of the Queen's portrait to any Canadian who
asked free of charge. Would you restore this program?
4. The government also removed the Queen's portrait from
the lobby of the Foreign Affairs Office and replaced it with
paintings by Alfred Pallen. Would you find a way to have both
paintings and portrait share the ample wall space of the
Foreign Affairs Office lobby?
5. The current government has not committed to supporting
the creation of a Platinum Jubilee Medal to mark Her
Majesty's 70th year on the throne. What are your views on
Mr. Aitchison's reply is as follows:
"I am proud of our Queen and a devout monarchist. My answers to each if your
questions is a resounding yes and I am frustrated by the current government’s
dismissive attitude toward Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee."
about the monarchy at any point. Mr. Aitchison has not. In
fairness he was first elected in 2019 and the last few years
have not been normal as far as debates in parliament go.
Next I checked to see if Mr. Aitchison has comments on the
monarchy in public. As it turns out he spoke warmly about
Prince Philip's career shortly after his passing.
Scott Aitchison is a solid monarchist candidate.
