I don't know that the provincial government has all that much power anyhow.

Even at the federal level, Canada is a Constitutional Monarchy. Which is wholy different from Socialism and a fair step away from Democracy or Facism as well.

A step towards being a Constitutional Democracy would probably require that the Queen give up a whole whack ton of power, not the least of which is a requirement to fight as an ally in war if Britain ever comes under fire.

Noone really talks about military in provincial or federal politics because really - its not our call.

It does make for a much more friendly nation however. If you know that you own nothing and we all pay into one king or queen, and the courts are all crown courts - there is very little grey area for complaints.

Are you retarded?

Entering wars is definitely Canada's call. Has been since 1931, which is why Canada didn't automatically declare war on Germany the same time as the UK did. We declared war on the 10th of September, not the 3rd. (Fun fact, we also declared war on Japan before the USA did.)

The Queen does not say whether we go to war or not, which is why she had no say about us sitting out Iraq, despite Britain's partcipation, yet participating in Kosovo, etc.

And if we HAD to defend the UK when it came under attack, where was the Canadian contingent in the Falklands?

And I will add this little tidbit.

Its kind of racist at the very least Euro centric to require that a person be able to communicate in both French and English to enter certain rungs of politics.

I mean that would be like requiring Rob Anders to learn both Chinese and Japanese to shine my shoes.
