The Governor General? Really?

Young people in Canada used to be taught that the Governor General was a mere figurehead who did nothing. Recently we learned that Michelle Jean might have denied Stephen Harper the prorogation of Parliament that he was seeking, and thus given a "losing" party leader a chance at being Prime Minister. Now the (new) GG is directly involved in stripping a convicted serial killer of his military commission.

People might start to think the GG has the potential to be an absolute monarch of Canada or something.
