RE: Scot Topic: empire state of mind  

I absolutely agree with Richard Joseph. Our current figurehead monarch no longer deserves to be on our currency, especially since they probably cannot underwrite it. Did Elizabeth open up the royal coffers for her loyal Canadian subjects when the great recession hit? No. Can you imagine another scenario where a bargain with her gives a reasonable expectation of prosperity for our citizens? I can't. Désormais...Maîtres chez nous!
