That's just the way I see it. I don't think telling one group they are somehow special compared to other citizens is positive, it just leads to a sense of entitlement that is not good for anyone. I do believe we have to live up to our obligations as set out in our Constitution, laws and treaties.
It's not some decree that they're "special." It's an affirmation of their unique standing in our society. They're not like other citizens and their relationships to the state and the monarch is different.

Edit: You want them to simply be just another citizen of Canada and they're not that socially, historically, nor legally.
