As Usual, I Blame The Tories

Canada's Governor-General Michaelle Jean has recently cancelled events citing "fatigue".

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketWe here at the Pop Culture Institute can only hope Her Excellency isn't ill; Jean's predecessor is twenty years older and didn't cancel events, despite a fairly major illness while in office. Likewise, the Lady she represents still does over two hundred engagements a years despite being nearly forty years older.

I'm just saying...

Re: "Canada's Governor-General Michaelle Jean..."

The Governor General of Canada is a "corporation sole", according to Elizabeth II in this web page document. A "corporation sole" is defined and recognized as being a corporation.

It is a fiction that a corporation is a person.

"A corporation is a fiction, by definition, ...", according to Patrick Healy in a statement that can be read here.

"A corporation is a 'fiction' as it has no separate existence, no physical body and no 'mind'", according to this presentation by Joanne Klineberg.

Yet I was under the impression that corporations were treated as individuals under the law, afforded most rights save the franchise.

Not sure what this has to do with the post, though.

Nevertheless, welcome.
