Philippe Lagassé and I have written a short article on the Crown of Canada as a corporation sole and how this fundamental attribute of the Crown pertains to royal succession and section 41(a) of the Constitution Act, 1982.
I’d like to thank Patricia Paradis of Constitutional Forum for having published our article, which you can read at the link below.
