Canada's government is a constitutional monarchy which means a king or queen shares power with an elected leader. the queen of England, queen elisabeth II has no political power over Canada any more and is just a political figurehead or a ceramonial leader. the prime minister, steven Harper has all the power.

The Queen is the head of state. The Prime Minister is the head of government. The Queen is represented in Canada by the Governor General.

The queen is in charge of the country and the Prime Minster is like the Deputy of the country. But they are massiveresponsibilities.
