Is it really true that the Queen of England has the power to dissolve the Canadian parliament?

Someone told me that is the case, and the mere possibility it might be true has me questioning the very foundations of our existence.

Say it ain't so, dammit.

I think technically she might have the power to dissolve parliament in times of severe national emergency, like technically she might have the power to do it here, but to all intents and purposes she couldn't practically do it, and if she tried it'd cause a constitutional crisis and quite probably bring about the end of the monarchy.

She can do whatever she wants. She's the God-damned Queen!

What are you, some sort of republican?

I assume it is some type of cheese curd.

Of course it is so. Well more precisely, the Queen of Canada.

You know that in parliamentary systems, the head of state usually has the power to dissolve parliament?

Fries with brown gravy and white cheese curds. It sounds very Canadian.

chips and gravy? you can't get much more british than that.

Replace the cheese with mayonaise and I'm all in.

How very Belgian. Nothing is worse then a Dutchman who thinks he's Belgian.

Funko

Drekkus and Mr_B are Belgians who think they're Dutch.

Oerdin

Rotterdam is near Belgium. Not so far as the bird flies or the Dutchman bicycles.

I still don't understand why you heathens would want brown gravy on your fries when you can have spicy chili and cheese as God intended it. Preferably with thin sliced jalapenos.

Funko

I'd have curry sauce/

Mmm, chips and curry sauce.
I don't really like chips and gravy but I'm quite happy with curry sauce, or chilli, or cheese or ketchup and mayo, or.... I'm making myself hungry now.

Hey Oerdin, I think my wife is cruising the San Diego bars tonight so please take a careful look at the arrest records in tomorrow's papers and let me know what really happened.
