bcsapper, you seem like a very nice fellow, so don't take this personally, but this I see as the fundamental problem.

I'm sure you're a nice fellow too but slightly misinformed as to the power the Queen still has. Canada is a constitutional Monarchy where the monarch agrees to loan her powers to the elected politicians, mostly the Prime Minister. The Canadian constitution grants the queen sweeping powers declaring that the executive government and authority of and over Canada is vested in her.  She is the head of Canada's parliament and the commander in chief of the Canadian Armed Forces. Symbolic you can argue but she still holds those powers.
