Even if technically true, I 100% support removing colonial/monarchical symbols wherever we can. What kind of a self respecting country pledges symbolic allegiance to a long-dead empire and a magic old guy in a castle in ANOTHER country? It's bootlicking, paternalistic, and it's frankly embarrassing. Canada should be a republic, and if we can't due to constitutional technicality then at least we should look like one.I'm not really sure what you mean by it being the 21st century and us having a crown on our license plates. Canada is a constitutional monarchy still and probably isn't going to change because of the way our constitution is worded to make a major change like that, it requires unanimous consent of all 10 provinces and also unanimous consent from both the house of commons and the Senate in Ottawa, plus before that would even take place there would have to be years of planning be done to figure out how to change the structure of the government on all levels.
Also of note people seem to forget that Blue and White are also the official colours of the city of Toronto that were given to us by Queen Victoria when Toronto was formed as a city.
