I felt the "Blown Carburetor" post needed an update on the day of the swearing in of the Governor General. Since my original post the GG has denounced the French part of her dual citizenship. A token gesture missing the mark entirely. The dual citizenship isn't particularly the problem is it? The fact that she has a connection to France is her right. Modern Canada was built for and by immigrants, historically we all belong somewhere else. The problem in its entirety is the fact that she has supported or sympathized in some unknown degree with separtists who would see this country destroyed. And now she is the face of that country to the world.
I reserve an amount of redemption for her if she can pull it off. I wait with bated breath to see her in Iqualuit, Amherst, Yellowknife, Stephenville... Her test will be when she leaves Ontario and Quebec and meets the true heart and soul of this dominion.
If we can allow a separatist party to lead the opposition of this knotted country then why not have a separtist as its international representative of the monarch.
Vive la Canada - in one form or another.
