And what he said

Stephen Maher ponders electing the Governor General
The Irish presidency is a good model. The Irish elect their presidents, who serve almost precisely the same function as our governors general, but with greater popular support, because they are elected. There has never been a power struggle between the two offices, which is something monarchists warn about here.
Cause when we abolish the monarchy, we'll have to think about it.  Meanwhile, a little wisdom from Marc Garneau, a guy who's seen Canada from space:
"The Royal in Royal Canadian Navy does not make me swell with pride," he said. "I am proud to have served in the Canadian Navy."
