communication between the cabinet and the monarch. They
have important roles in advising the monarch and helping to
organize royal tours.
The role has been vacant since 2017 when the last CSQ, Kevin
MacLeod stepped down. A vacancy of a couple years is not
entirely unusual for this position. The longest vacancy was
actually between 2005 and 2009. For the last couple years the
roles of the office have been exercised by the Department of
Donald Booth has previously worked in the Privy Council.
There is little other information about him at this time.
According to the Monarchist League of Canada the Prime
Minister was the 'moving spirit' behind this appointment. It
is good to hear that among the many priorities of running a
minority government Justin Trudeau hasn't let the monarchy
slip through the cracks. This could also indicate that future
royal tours are in the planning stages as the CSQ has an
important role in that regard.
