I always thought that Canada is a self-governing nation with the Sovereign of the United Kingdom as a (ceremonial) Head of State.

The Prime Minister, actually directs the governing of the country.

It's an unfortunate impression that Canada is not a self-governing country, and is subservient to to the UK.. particularity from those pesky Limey's that still think the UK is relevant on the world stage.

I am so old that I am one of the last people who were taught Canadian history and our form of government?

Canada is not subservient to the UK. We have the same monarch.

The very last. I remember my grandfather saying he wanted to learn about Canadian history but his teacher said nope sorry, Frankiedoodle was the last one. He was right in line after you. They just gave him an onion and a train ticket to Toronto. He sold that onion and got a transfer to Edmonton, which was only 11 miles outside of Toronto at the time. Due to my grandfather having never learned anything about Canadian history, Edmonton ended up in Alberta, where it remains to this very day.

What became of the onion we never found out. But there were rumours that the onion got a ticket on the Titantic, which was leaving from New York to Frankfurter. At the time Frankfurter was called Frankfurter and was changed to Weinertown after the war, on account of Hitler's maiden name being Weinertown. It was also on the Atlantic coast of France back then. Again, due to Frankiedoodle being the last to learn Canadian history, the Titanic sank on its way to Europe, but now we say it sank on its way to America. Was it an iceberg that sunk it? Or was it the onion my grandfather sold? No one will ever know because we don't learn Canadian history anymore.

You might. I don't recognize the authority of an inbred, unelected foreigner.

Corduroy, you have convinced me that I need to share my knowledge of Canadian, be prepared for a series of primers that I will begin momentarily. Oh, do much to say and so little time.

Is this the level of writing we can expect when you share your knowledge.

Just trying to get out too much knowledge too quickly. I will pay more attention in my next missive.

So authority is only there if it is recognized?

That is exactly right. The ultimate authority in anybody's life is themselves. Authority is a left over concept perpetrated by monarchies and totalitarian governments. Time to reclaim our authority.
