How and how elects the minister and shadow minister?

Canadian ministers are not elected.Rather, the prime minister selects persons to become ministers, and the Governor General of Canada makes the appointments. Though ministers are not elected, they are nonetheless responsible to the elected representatives of the House of Commons. Ministers may be removed at any time by the Governor General (on the prime minister's advice), or collectively may be forced to resign or seek an election by a vote of the House of Commons.The term shadow ministers is not used for Canadian politics; the equivelant position is critics, and they collectively form (with the Leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition) a "Government-in-waiting" to replace the current party should the Governor General or electorate so decide. Critics are appointed by the Leader of the Opposition, and can be removed by the Leader of the Opposition.
