... the federal viceroy, upon receiving advice from the prime minister of Canada, decided that there was no evidence that her appointed government had lost the confidence of the elected parliament?
What if, the Governor General insisted that she had the right and the obligation to consult with the constitutional head of Canada and therefore would not draw up a writ calling a general election? She does have law on her side, after all. An amended law. She should be allowed to place this under consideration before issuing a decision.
Would Steve Harper's head explode because two women weren't doing his bidding?
