Half of young Canadians indifferent toward royal couple

64 percent of Quebecers would like to completely sever ties to monarchy

by

An Angus Reid Public Opinion poll conducted by The Toronto Star reveals that over half of Canadians aged 18 to 34 are indifferent toward Wills and Kate’s upcoming Canadian tour. 37 percent of Canadians over age 55 and 43 percent between 35 and 54 feel the same way. The vice-president of Angus Reid, Jaideep Mukerji, says that young people may be uninterested in William and Kate because they feel the British monarchy is irrelevant in their lives. French-speaking Canadians weighed in as the least interested in the royals, with 64 percent in favour of completely severing ties with the monarchy.
