Will the next GG be "another Drone"? OR the embodiment of the Cdn Crown?

Inbox of the PMO/PCO, Secretary to the GG, Pierre et al,


I believe I heard a news story yesterday (Sat Apr 3) that Her Excellency, (the truly-lovely, second-consecutive, visible-minority, former CBC-hostess) was not to be recommended for the Queen's appointment to an extended term by the Rt Hon S. Harper.

AND

that Rick Hansen (shame on those Ontario-copiers) had declined the opportunity?

Was this a legit story/coverage? or just rumour?


Question: will this new GG be appointed with the fully recognized authority and mandate of that Office as described in BNA/Constitution 1867 (ss 9-15) powers that were re-confirmed in the 1947 Letters Patent (and expanded therein to include the office of "Commander-in-Chief in and over Canada")?

If not, why are we collectively defying the as-written, hierarchical checks and balances provisions of our foundational law?

If not, why hasn't the Competition Bureau, the Federal Court, the Supreme Court, some sharp constitutional law professor or otherwise astute lawyer-out-to-make-a-name-for-themselves interrupted the public debate with this "point of the highest order"?

As a Canadian, I would quite enjoy the sense of peace (order and good, as-written-law-abiding governance) that flowed from the knowledge that any Prime Minister with but 50+1% support in the "Democratic-Element" House of Commons and but 50%+1 support in the Upper "House of Property-Owners" ss 23(3)(4) & 31(3)(5) was again being compelled by law, convention and the public to obtain Executive Approval (BNA ss55-57) (to any and all Bills and Orders) from the Constitutionally-Authorized representative of the Queen of Canada who, held that Office and exercised those enumerated powers based on consent from a fully-informed citizenry.
