Poll reveals North Shore residents' feelings about the monarchy

Those wishing to remain a constitutional monarchy outnumber those who don't.
Queen & Prince Philip
The Queen and Prince Philip visited Cobourg, Ontario in 1973 during one of 22 official visits to Canada as a royal couple.

It's been three weeks since Queen Elizabeth II died. Her son King Charles III is now our head of state and the Commonwealth is entering a new era. 

But how do North Shore residents feel about staying under the Crown for another generation?

North Shore News polled 2,798 online readers and asked the question: Should Canada stay under the monarchy in the future?

The poll ran from Sept. 19 to Sept. 29 on our website. Of the 2,798 votes, we can determine that 946 are from within the North Shore community. The full results are as follows:

Yes, it grounds us in tradition and provides stability. 47.99% local, 46.46% total    
I am OK with a monarchy but I am not keen on our current royals. 5.92% local, 6.54% total    
No, it is an outdated custom that should end. 35.62% local, 36.81% total    
I'm indifferent about the subject. 10.47 % local, 10.19 % total

Results are based on an online study of adult North Shore News readers who are located in North Vancouver and West Vancouver. The margin of error – which measures sample variability – is +/- 1.84%, 19 times out of 20.
