The Crown in Canada – A Virtual Exhibit January 26, 2011

Posted by J. Hawkes in News.

John Diefenbaker held a deep respect for the monarchy and was a passionate defender of the British Parliamentary system throughout his political career. However, Diefenbaker’s time as Prime Minister fell within a difficult period for British-Canadian relations, as the ties to Britain slowly eroded and Canada grew closer to the United States. Despite this, Diefenbaker’s love of the British tradition manifested itself in much of his policy and in his encounters with the Crown.

Check out this virtual exhibit hosted by the Diefenbaker Centre. It has some interesting documents and images from the Prime Minister’s files. An interesting look back at the past from early in the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
