Canada residents fight Queen citizenship oath in court

Gee whiz... if you don't want to accept Queen Elizabeth as monarch of Canada, why apply for citizenship here? I support Canada's generous immigration policy but must we forgo something as foundational as our allegiance to the Crown to accommodate immigrants who want to become citizens of our country?

I hope not.

  1. I have no problem pledging allegiance to the Queen. I will have a hard time pledging allegiance to Charles.

    I never realized Liz was one of the walking dead. This changes things.

  3. Good for those "new" imigrants...wished my grandpa could have done that when he came here 109 years ago..Canada a "nation" for 146 years, what are we doing "pledging allegiance"to an "English" monarch..your relatives must be turning in their graves Father!

My Irish ancestors might indeed be spinning but as someone who has grown up here, I've come to appreciate our governing system - monarchy and all.

Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
