That’s a better way to look at it.

Symbols are important. It's a symbol of colonialism and subservience...you put her on a pedestal and call her "highness".

No, we call her the Queen. You’re too fixated on subservience and colonialism and clearly don’t read either as you obviously didn’t read anything I posted above.

You gave a good explanation.

I did indeed read what you said. Which was why I answered you in the way I did...pointing out that symbolism is important. Monarchy IS about the symbolism of subservience and submission, whether you like it or not. The monarch is at the top of the pyramid and everyone else is underneath them. If you accept a monarch as your head of state, you accept that you are inferior to them.

And, in having a foreigner who doesn't even live in your country, the head of state of the country that colonised you and head of the "colonial club" called the Commonwealth there is the symbolism of colonisation and lack of national pride.  People who love their country wouldn't dream of tolerating accepting that.

You really don't understand Canadians if you think this how we feel.

Well, you can't have national pride if you are happy to have a foreigner who has only visited  your  country a handful of times as your head of state, and you can't have self respect if you are happy to be considered inferior to this person.
