In the absence of Bastin:

They are not English dominions, they were British or Commonwealth dominions, and they are now members of the Commonwealth that accept Queen Elisabeth II as head of state.

The proper spelling is "New Zealand".



Now:

Australia maybe. Canada unlikely since it would require a constituional ammendment and that is very difficult to do. New Zealand I don't know.

The original spelling was 'Nieuw Zeeland'. And it was Dutch.

Now, somebody get Bastin.

LMAO...slaves of the English.

More like slaves of the Americans, but has nothing to do with the English.
The Queen's power in Canada is 0 (zero). Even her own representative, the Governor-General, is in fact selected by the Prime Minister here.

Why? I mean the system should change a little to have someone that will balance the PM's power, but I don't see why it should be done just to "kick the english ***** out".
The English have no power over what happens here, who gave you that idea?

Yeah, and I guess while we're at it, we should change the official languages from English and French to Ojibwe and Inuktituk.

Kind of hard to take comments about jetissoning the British monarchy seriously from a guy with French royal symbols on his flag, no?

John Howard has said that he thinks that AUstralia will become a republic when the queen is no more. He said alot of people like her in AUstralia so its not likely to happen while she is alive.

And its really spelt; NU ZEELUND, and fush and chups...
