Coast readers on the Crown
Last week, The Coast conducted an informal survey on our website and social media platforms, asking readers if they wanted Canada to abolish the monarchy. Out of a grand total of 235 responses, 64% of our readers were anti monarchy, 26% pro monarchy and 9% were indifferent or ambivalent.
But interestingly, users of some platforms were far more into—or against—the Crown than others. Here’s the breakdown of the results by platform.
TheCoast.ca website 57% anti monarchy, 13% indifferent, 30% pro monarchy
Twitter 60% anti monarchy, 40% pro monarchy

Instagram 86% anti monarchy, 14% pro monarchy
