The Globe and Mail quotes Toronto/Ottawa lawyer, Guy Giorno, in an article on forming a government.
First, the legal rules. The prime minister always gets the first crack at forming a minority government. Guy Giorno, who served as chief of staff to former prime minister Stephen Harper and is now a lawyer with Fasken, penned a piece this week about the "realities and myths" of forming government in Canada that concluded there isn't any confusion about that question.
"Justin Trudeau remains the prime minister until he resigns, dies, or is dismissed," Mr. Giorno wrote.
