As I thought, nothing but a poor understanding of, well, everything.
I ask for evidence, and all I get are opinions.
As for the Queen...you must mean the Queen of Canada....you know, the one that fulfills the Monarchy portion of our Constitutional Monarchy.
Or can only us plebs hold two titles concurrently?
The only thing interesting about your posts are the level of delusion.
How about you start with actual sources...like, I don't know...the Bank of Canada Act. You know, the actual law surrounding it.

The BOC have not followed the law, bna or constitution since 1973 and are being taken to task via legal actions.
The Queen is an offshore ruler and Canada conforms to the definition of a colony. Hello?

Trudeau is quite a "character", he boxes too:
In a stark policy shift, Mexico President Enrique Pena Nieto told the United Nations that Mexico will move to legalize marijuana for medicinal use and raise the amount that would be de-criminalized for personal consumption.

And so they should. And why is the UN always apart of everything?
The United Nations recently flexed a bit of muscle by sending out a briefing to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, advising the Liberal government to explain to world leaders how they plan to legalize, regulate and restrict access to marijuana without violating international drug treaties.
Several other countries are believed to have received a similar warning. The UN’s memo indicates that a number of nations have expressed interest in reforming their policies on marijuana and other drugs, and will be forced to plead their case during the UNGASS gathering in April.
Many argue that the United Nations does not have any real authority over the issue of marijuana legalization; otherwise Uruguay would have created an international incident when it became the first country in the world to establish a legal framework for weed. But Uruguay was actually forced to answer to the same harassment tactics as Canada and Mexico – only leadership stood up to the UN by refusing to pull back on their plan in the interest of public health.
Last summer, Juan Andrés Roballo, the president of Uruguay’s National Drug Board submitted a report to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights defending the country’s decision to legalize marijuana despite the argument that the country’s plan was “incompatible with what is stipulated in the 1961 Convention.” Although the UN claims it is keeping a watchful eye on Uruguay, even on the United States, nothing has been done to avert legalization.
