The appointment of the GG is not subject to a confidence motion or any other kind of motion by parliament. By you stating the same bullshit again, does not make it ring true. The PM selects the GG and the Queen makes the appointment. What part of that do you not understand?

Looking at the list in the poll, if, by chance, Glen Murray were appointed GG, would he not be the Queen?

In case some were wondering...The appointment of a GG in Canada has to go through a vote in the House of Commons first and it is an "Automatic" vote of "confidence" or "non confidence" for the governing party...

"or Harper's pick for GG it will force us into an election"

what the hell are you talking about? There is no way any government would fall because of the appointment of a particular person to GG. THE QUEEN and only THE QUEEN, can refuse to appoint the person that Harper suggests.

That would be an extremely rare and damn near impossible thing to happen.

If the government ends up with a "Non Confidence" vote as a result of the other parties not agreeing...You better believe it we are going to the polls...Remember it has to pass through the House of Commons first and unless someone can change the "Constitution etc" the vote is automatically a "Vote of Confidence in the Government"...

Wrong.. 100% WRONG. the appointment of the GG does NOT have to pass through the house of commons first just because you think it does.

Bullshit. Show me where it says the selection of the GG is subject to a parliamentary vote.

More bullshit. If you're sitting at your computer, and have access to the internet, you can look up the constitution just as well as anyone. You made the statement, now back it up.

Soon the Queen will be gone (old age) and then lots will change. What a great day when we lose the GG, LG's and while we're cleaning up that waste of time we can get rid of the Senate (or elect them). Once people see things change/move then we will start to demand more and quicker change in the future on all things. It makes me sick how things are passed quickly and quietly and then we're to believe it's necessary to suffer years of the painful nothingness process to repeal or change whatever it is. Government will change and our only hope is Harper. I hope see by the polls that more and more people are finally seeing that.

Ok...I know this is wiki...but someone would've corrected it if it was wrong.

The Governor General of Canada (French [masculine]: Gouverneur général du Canada, or [feminine]: Gouverneure générale du Canada) is the viceregal representative in the federal jurisdiction of the Canadian monarch and head of state, Queen Elizabeth II, who is equally shared with 15 other sovereign nations in a form of personal union, but resides predominantly in her oldest realm, the United Kingdom. On the advice of her Canadian Prime Minister only,[1] the Queen appoints the Governor General to carry out most of the monarch's constitutional and ceremonial duties for an unfixed period of time — known as serving At Her Majesty's pleasure — though five years is the normal convention, as is a rotation between anglophone and francophone incumbents. Once in office, these individuals maintain direct contact with the Queen, wherever she may be at the time.[2]
The office has its roots in the 16th and 17th century colonial governors of New France and British North America, and thus is the oldest continuous institution in Canada.[3]
The present incarnation of the position emerged with Canadian Confederation and the British North America Act in 1867, which defined the viceregal office as the "Governor General acting by and with the Advice of the Queen's Privy Council for Canada."[4]
However, the post still ultimately represented the government of the United Kingdom (that is, the monarch in his British Council) until the passage in 1931 of the Statute of Westminster,[5][6]whereafter the Governor General became the direct representative of the uniquely Canadian sovereign (the monarch in his Canadian Council).[7][8]
This was the culmination of a process of gradual independence that saw the Governor General take on an ever expanding role: in 1904, the Militia Act granted permission for the Governor General to use the title of Commander-in-Chief of the Canadian militia,[9]
in the name of the sovereign and actual Commander-in-Chief,[10] and in 1927 the first official international visit by a Governor General was made.[11][12]
In 1949, King George VI issued letters patent allowing the viceroy to carry out almost all of the monarch's powers in his or her stead. Per the Constitution Act, 1982, any constitutional amendment that affects the Crown, including the Office of the Governor General, requires the unanimous consent of each provincial legislature as well as the federal parliament.

Don Cherry would make an amazing GG. He'd piss off every country within a year of his appointment, starting with the Swedes and the Quebecers.
