Many people in this country believe that the Monarchy is an anacronism, and that our maintenence of a position like Governor-General perpetuates a coloniel past that we've long-since outgrown. Others, including me, believe that maintaining a Head of State that's non-political keeps us rational. Unlike Americans, we can maintain a healthy level of disrespect toward the Prime Minister, and no one will accuse us of lacking patriotism.

Despite this difference of opinion, there's one thing we can all agree on: the plural form of "Governor-General" is "Governors-General".

This brings me to the bad news. How is it that I'm working in a call centre, and the hack that wrote this headline is being paid for words?
Governor generals must be media-savvy: experts
The good news is that most media outlets have more skill at writing - Sun Media, Hollinger, the Globe... they're all just fine.

Well, just so long as CTV got the facts right, at least.
