OK. No more beating around the bush…
Over the past year there has been more and more of an “outcry” against the Governor General of Canada. There are constant questions being raised about her purpose, her position, and her relevance.
I keep hearing all this whining about her spending habits, her parties, her views on minorities, and her tendency to butt into popular Canadian debates.
So I ask you, Dear Reader.
What would You have us do with the Governor General?
What is proper behaviour for our “Proxy”-Head of State.
Are the people who seem to oppose her every move silently wishing she, and the Queen she represents, wasn’t a part of Canadian Governance?
I would like to know, sincerely, why people seem to have a bone to pick with the Governor General at every turn. Is it because she’s a woman of a visible minority and thus speaks too loudly for those she most closely represents?
Should we start down the road the Australians took and look at a Presidency? What advantage would that give us… and what exactly would that gain us.
I’d just really like to know… because if people can’t find some good reasons to get rid of the Governor General, and can *replace* her with something different, than frankly, who are they to constantly be on her case.
Patiently waiting for an answer…
