Re: Editorial, ‘Yes, we should be willing to pay for royal couple’s security’
Most Canadians in fact don’t believe we should foot the bill. Canadians are largely done with anything really “Royal” from what I’ve seen the last few years.
Why should we suffer the cost of a couple of celebs who have decided they don’t like the limelight? What has the monarchy done for anyone lately? Short answer, cost us money. Loads of it.
Tell us all how we need more pomp and circumstance in any way. There is an over-abundance of fools (see Ottawa) who cost us millions daily for no real return.
At a time of such decline with the provincial and national economy a complete wreck we need this like a house fire. Nice people sure. Pay your own way, definitely. Otherwise stay home.
Pay for the security of these pampered royal transients? I don’t think so. Maybe the money could be directed to protecting something that has value and will create exceptional return. Like the planet.
I usually agree with your opinions Mel, but not this time.
I’m incredibly disappointed in you. Why can’t you leave the Royals out of the press? I thought we as Canadians were better than that. It’s none of your business nor mine. And I’ll no longer be reading or watching anything written by you.
