Dale Smith
Dale Smith has been a freelance journalist in the Canadian Parliamentary Press Gallery since 2008, and is the author of The Unbroken Machine: Canada’s Democracy in Action [Dundurn Press, 2017]. His news reports and columns have appeared in Reuters, The Law Times, The National Post, Maclean’s and many other publications. His interest in politics began in high school, when he served as a page in the Alberta Legislature.

As an introduction to the theme of his talk on “The Maple Crown”, he says: “Most people don’t understand that the Canadian monarchy is a separate and unique institution, but, as a unique Canadian institution, it is under threat. Politicisation of the monarchy by the former government, and a waning interest in doing royal tours by the younger generation of the royal family have put us in the position that Canadians must do more to assert their unique monarchy before it fades into obscurity.”

Historic Canadian Coronation Artefacts

Some of the items from the Canadian Royal Heritage Museum that will be on display at the dinner will include the chair used at the coronation by Norman Robertson, Canadian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, who carried the royal banner of Canada in the Coronation Procession; the stool used at the coronation by Harold Fishleigh, an Ontario MPP; a piece of the carpeting from Westminster Abbey;
