Royal Wedding

Did you know Canada.. of course you all know William and Kate (now known as Duke & Duchess of Cambridge, Earl & Countess of Strathearn and Baron & Countess Carrickfergus) were wed in the most beautiful Royal Wedding this morning.

In a statement today, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said the government of Canada is offering the gift of $50,000 donation to the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary on behalf of all Canadians as our wedding gift to the happy couple. The donation will help the group provide a permanent search-and-rescue program, and to help prevent injuries or loss of life at sea.

As we mentioned before Will & Kate will be visiting our beautiful country June 30 to July 8 where their visit will include trips to Alberta, the Northwest Territories, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, and the Ottawa area.

  2. Yes, the Governor General of Canada was there bearing a personal letter from the prime minister informing the couple of the gifts and delivering his words of congratulations.

    The prime minister will be presenting them a personal gift of camping gear when they visit in June/July.

  3. I'm going to play the devil's advocate here just for fun. Managing the Monarchy costs Canadian taxpayers $50 Million a year. I wonder if that money would be better spent fixing the pension plan or paying child care workers higher wages. I'm not an abolitionist, the Brits should chose their own course of action. I would like to see Canada cut the royal apron strings and stop paying the vast spider web of royals and their offspring hard earned Canadian taxpayer money.
