The governor General has the most power:
The head of state in Canada is the Queen/sovereign, but since she cannot always be in Canada the governor general takes her place. The governor general is the representative for the queen and has the most power and authority. They have so much power that without their consent laws do not get passed, country does not go to war, election cant be held, etc. The reason I think they have the power to make things happen is because when you think about it they are just as important as the prime minister, maybe even more. Absolutely nothing happens in the country until the governor general is informed. If something happens to the prime minister or he/she resigns, it is the governor general's job to make sure that the government continues and has a prime minister. The governor general is also responsible for summoning the Parliament and reading the speech from the throne.
