today was Ibrahim Bruno El-Khoury. At the
present time his candidacy has been
declared but not finalized. I contacted the
candidate through his Facebook page.
Unlike the other candidate I contacted
today Mr. El-Khoury had some positive
things to say about our monarchy:
"Monarchy is part of our history and Canadian heritage which we like to preserve
in a way or another for a number of reasons. While Canadians have aspirations for
evolving as a nation, should the Monarchy becomes a major obstacle for such
aspirations, then someone should explore best ways of overcoming these obstacles,
while preserving heritage. For the sake of learning, we see that Denmark and
Norway are among the most advanced democracies while still being Kingdoms.
Having said so, Canada is a constitution monarchy and should Canadians decide to
upgrade democracy, they will be in position to do so. All what's required is a
means becoming a republic is annoyingly common.
As I always do I checked Google for any other comments Mr.
El-Khoury might have made about the monarchy. In this case
I found none. This is not surprising given his short time in
public life. Overall, one of the better responses I have received
