UPDATE: to date, This House Has 22 Minutes has NOT aired this segment.

Michael McAteer, a founding member of Republic Now/ République du Canada and a Director on its Board, will appear in an interview to be aired on the CBC television program, This Hour Has 22 Minutes, on Tuesday, March 17, 8:30 pm. EDT. The interview will be concerned with Michael’s participation, as one of three litigants, in the legal challenge of the requirement that new Canadians swear an oath of allegiance and faithfulness to the Queen and her heirs and successors. In accordance with his principles, Michael has not become a Canadian citizen because of the oath. This principled stand was also taken by the late Charles Roach, another founding member of Republic Now/ République du Canada and the initiator of the legal challenge.

It may be helpful to keep in mind when watching the show, that This Hour Has 22 Minutes is satirical in nature.

Kind regards,
Ashok Charles
