Quebec Government, and others, challenge Canadian Royal Succession

June 4, 2015

According to The Guardian:

[Plaintiffs] Motard and Taillon, supported by the Quebec government, and Canadian Royal Heritage Trust, a monarchist organisation, contend that, because Canada is a sovereign state with its own constitution, its parliament must alter Canadian law to implement the royal succession reform.

In 1982…the Canada Act severed any residual jurisdiction that the British parliament had over Canadian law, including Canadian royal succession, the plaintiffs will claim.

“We believe that the 1982 Canada Act has severed all remaining legal ties with the UK and that includes the monarchy.”
