Crown - Meaning

McAteer v. Canada (Attorney General) (Ont CA, 2014)

In this case, in which a Charter challenge to the citizenship oath to the Queen was dismissed, the Court of Appeal clarified that such references in the oath (and apparently generally for legal matters) were not to the Queen of England as an individual person, but rather to "our form of government".
