Storyline

A newly elected Prime Minister conspires to secretly destroy Canada's monarchist institutions from within, starting with a new Governor General: one-time disco diva Regina Gallant. The PM waits for Regina and Rideau Hall to implode - but the blissfully oblivious Regina has decided that she actually wants to give this new job her best shot. And thanks to her show-biz schooling, Regina has a few tricks up her sleeve that even the PM could never have anticipated. Written by Anonymous

A very promising show with a great premise
31 January 2002 | by (Fort Smith, NT, Canada) – See all my reviews

A conniving Canadian Prime Minister, keen to sever the final remaining ties to the British Monarchy, plots to undo the office of Governor General by putting in place a G.G. so embarrassing and unsuitable that the Canadian people will demand that the vice regal position be eliminated. He decides upon Nova Scotian Regina Gallant, a former one-hit wonder disco queen from the 1970s. Brash, loud but not without a charming common touch, Regina proceeds to to shock the stuffy Rideau Hall staff and indeed all Canadians with her own unique take on her vice regal duties.
