An appointed prime minister is not a president. Canada's monarchy is almost identical to Britain's. Call it what you will - but it is a manarchy, first and foremost.

"...the construct was established at Confederation, through the Constitution Act, 1867, as a federal constitutional monarchy, wherein the Canadian Crown acts as the core, or "the most basic building block," of its Westminster-style parliamentary democracy."

"The government is defined by the constitution as the Queen acting on the advice of her privy council. However, the Privy Council— consisting mostly of former members of parliament, chief justices of the Supreme Court, and other elder statesmen— rarely meets in full; as the stipulations of responsible government require that those who directly advise the monarch and governor general on how to exercise the Royal Prerogative be accountable to the elected House of Commons, the day-to-day operation of government is guided only by a sub-group of the Privy Council made up of individuals who hold seats in parliament. This body of ministers of the Crown is the Cabinet."

"One of the main duties of the Crown is to "ensure that a democratically elected government is always in place," which means appointing a prime minister— presently Stephen Harper— to thereafter head the Cabinet. Per convention, the governor general must appoint as prime minister the person who holds the confidence of the House of Commons; in practice, this is typically the leader of the political party that holds more seats than any other party in that chamber, currently the Conservative Party. Should no party hold a majority in the Commons, the leader of one party— either the one with the most seats or one supported by other parties— will be called by the governor general to form a minority government. Once sworn in by the viceroy, the prime minister holds office until he or she resigns or is removed by the governor general, after either a motion of non confidence or his party's defeat in a general election."

"The Parliament of Canada, the bicameral national legislature located on Parliament Hill in the national capital of Ottawa, consists of the Queen (represented by the governor general), the appointed Senate (upper house), and the elected House of Commons (lower house). The governor general summons and appoints each of the (currently) 105 members of senators on the advice of the prime minister."

The Prime Minister is not appointed by a Monarch, the Monarch has no power and is merely a ceremonious figurehead. The country pays no taxes to said Monarch, the most she gets his her face on the back of a few coins.

You want a monarchy, look at Saudi Arabia.

But that still didn't answer my question as to how you came to figure that Canada has no government.

I never said the prime minister was appointed by a monarch. How do you figure I said that?

Canada's so-called "government" is a federation based on monarchy.

Victoria: It has a governing body, therefor it is a government.

Government does not read "government."

And while we're at it - show me again where I said the prime minister of Canada is appointed by a monarch.

Thanks in advance.

I said the Prime Minister isn't appointed by a Monarch. The Prime Minister becomes Prime Minister as result of an election.

In simple terms, there are parties, party delegates appoint a party leader, party that receives the most votes hence the most seats is the majority party and leader of the party by default becomes Prime Minister.

Grouping all these parties together they are referred to as a, you guessed it, THE GOVERNMENT. Their job is to run the country.

Please tell me where a Monarch fits in to all of this?

Even a dictatorship is considered of form of Government. Saying Canada has NO government is just stupid.
