Okay, so even if your sensibilities are predisposed to dislike the monarchy, you understand the irrationality and undesirability of trying to change the status of the Canadian monarchy?

I dislike the Senate, too. It needs to change. At the present, other than trying to have provinces select their own Senators so that it is not simply a partisan retirement home for whomever happens to be in government, I'm not sure how any change is possible.
