Contrarian Posted October 20, 2022 Report Share Posted October 20, 2022 (edited) This is an article which is trending in one application that I read the news: Some deputies from the Canadian province of Quebec, recently elected in provincial elections, refused to swear allegiance to King Charles III, the head of state of Canada, as required by the Canadian Constitution, reports Barrons and Agerpres. Eleven MPs from the left-wing Quebec Solidair party took the oath in a live televised ceremony, "to the people of Quebec", but did not want to say another oath that would bind them to the British monarchy, at the risk of not - he could exercise his mandates in the National Assembly of Quebec at the end of November. A spokesman for the party, Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, later assured a press conference that they had acted "in full knowledge of the matter". "We campaigned to change the era in Quebec and if we are sent to Parliament, we are sent to open windows," he declared. Friday is the turn of the Parti Québécois to take the oath and the three sovereignist deputies have announced their intention to no longer swear allegiance to the sovereign. The leader of the party, Paul St-Pierre Plamondon, announced last week that it is a "conflict of interests", because "you cannot serve two masters". He denounces the fact that the monarchy costs "67 million Canadian dollars a year" and that this oath is a "reminder of colonial rule".
