Bring on the Queen for Throne Speech

During Her Majesty's silver jubilee of 1977, Queen Elizabeth II opened her Canadian Parliament giving the Speech from the Canadian Throne. This most important constitutional act brings together the very three things that form Canada's constitutional monarchy: our sovereign the Queen, Parliamentarians, and the Queen's Canadian subjects, which is what the Fathers of Confederation wanted for the Dominion of Canada. How fitting it would be for the Queen of Canada, Elizabeth II who is the constitutional Head of State, to perform this constitutional act again, in October for her golden jubilee year 2002. God bless our constitutional monarchy and God save our gracious and noble Queen!
