If the Queen maintains the expenses at Rideau Hall upkeep etc. then it is her house. If the Canadian people do then its OUR house

We're fortunate that we didn't have to suffer the embarrassment of the queen needing to stay somewhere else.

Why are we unable to appoint people that care about Canada to the GG job.

It's difficult to say this without sounding a bit racist but isn't there some Canadian Born worthy candidates for the role?

I'm no fan of royalty ... but the GG's husband is a coddled idiot ... the moron needs to learn his place in Canada and keep his big mouth shut ... he is nothing but a freeloader!

Did anyone tell the Queen about his request? I doubt it, and if they did, I would surely hope that she would instead say something like "If you do not want me to stay at the house you live in, leave my country". She is after all, technically the ruler and owner of Canada. If someone was house sitting for me and told me not to sleep there when I get home, I would be having the police remove said person from my property, in the Queens case, her property extends to the entire Commonwealth.

Time for the GG and her seperatist husband to be shown the door.

You may or may not like the Queen and the monarchy but you are living in her house on our dime. Typical classless seppy pig should be tried for treason and appropriately disposed of.

The biggest blinder in PM Martin's career is, in my humble opinion, the appointment of a mediocre (at best surely) journalist and her effete, pedantic and elitist separatist husband (he married the babysitter no?)

Finally they will move out.

Now lets see what Harpo the clown will put in the Hall...maybe his buddy Brian

Wow, this request is coming arguably the biggest freeloader on the fed's budget, man-oh-man ... the audacity. And let's review where his free-digs address is.

His excellency's title (Lafond's) should be officially re-labelled to "jack-ass". Whether your pro or nay the monarchy is so way beyond the point.

It is about time we had a major house cleaning in Ottawa , can you imagine someone who is a freeloader on working Canadian taxpayer dollars dictating who lives or stays at Rideau Hall . He is supposed to be addressed as a titled person never by me , throw the freeloader out as well as his partner .

While I'm no fan of royalty myself (it's an EXPENSIVE figurehead to maintain), this is currently what we have. Keeping a GG and their family is also very EXPENSIVE so they had best toe the same line the rest of us do. The GG and her husband both erred in this case.

This is what happens when you let foreigners represent a country they have no loyalties to.

Yes I have a huge problem with this. He is living in that house because his wife is the GG. He is nothing in our government. He gets to live for free in the Queens house and then has the nerve to tell her he doesn't want her in her own house.
