Why this petition matters

Started by Wade Doucette

Our petition title is directed to the governor general to use her “reserve” power to dissolve parliament and dismiss the prime minister. 

Citizens of Canada we would like to draw your attention to the dilemma we will undergo if we do not challenge Jagmeet Singh and Justin Trudeau in their malicious agreement to oppress us for the next three years. Your families will go hungry, you will not be able to heat your home in the winter, and if you protest and demand your guaranteed fundamental freedom rights you will be beaten and put into prison.

“Responsible government means a Government that is accountable to the People.” 

On February 14th, 2022, our prime minister demonstrated extreme overreach and a major lack of accountability to the Canadian people. Rather than meeting with the representatives of the 2022 Freedom Convoy to discuss their concerns, he invoked the Emergencies Act in order to deal with the protesters. Since the protest was conducted in a peaceful manner, invoking the Emergencies Act was an unjustified infringement on the people’s right to participate in a peaceful assembly. The Act was invoked without just cause.

World leaders of the European Union recognize Trudeau’s infringement on the Rights and Freedom of the people of Canada, and some have declared that they believe that Canada is no longer a democracy. If you want to take back our nation democratic status, please sign and share this petition and then collaborate with us to make it happen.

We will need a least one million people to sign this petition for it to have any influence on the Governor General. Two million, which is only about four percent of the population, would be fantastic.

The Governor’s General “reserve” powers: 

While the role of the Governor General is significantly restricted by conventions, it is not entirely symbolic. On rare occasions, a Governor General can exercise personal discretion, meaning that he or she can act independently of prime ministerial advice. This ability to exercise personal discretion revolves around the Governor’s General “reserve power.” Two established reserve powers are the Governor’s General authority to refuse a prime minister’s request to dissolve Parliament and the right to appoint or dismiss a prime minister.

The Governor’s General reserve powers are necessary for ensuring that the conventions of responsible government are observed. For example, the Governor’s General power to dismiss the prime minister may be necessary in the event that a prime minister violates constitutional convention by refusing to resign after an opposition party obtains a clear majority in a general election. Equally as important is the Governor’s General power to appoint a prime minister, which ensures that the Crown always has a prime minister to advise exercises of the Crown’s power and to take responsibility for the acts of the Crown before the house of commons.

Events concerning our Governor General since 1947:

In 1947 King George VI issued Letters Patent permitting the governor general “to exercise all powers and authorities lawfully belonging to Us [the monarch] in respect of Canada.” 

This left the Queen our Head of State with no responsibilities except for appointing a governor general that the prime minister has selected. A responsibility that she could not pass on to someone else. We have had fourteen Governors General since 1947 that have all had the executive power of the Monarch. Astonishing.

Remarkable comments by two Canadian distinguished scholars:

Peter Hogg, a constitutional scholar, has opined that “a system of responsible government cannot work without a formal head of state who is possessed of certain reserve powers.

Eugene Forsey stated “the reserve power is indeed, under our Constitution, an absolutely essential safeguard of democracy. It takes the place of the legal and judicial safeguards provided in the United States by written Constitutions, enforceable in the courts.”    

Hogg and Forsey have described perfectly why our nation is in a state of chaos.

It is my learned opinion that our current governor general has the reserve power to dissolve Parliament and the right to appoint and dismiss the prime minister.

For your own good, and for the good of your children and grandchildren, please sign this petition.
