Apparently Ed Schreyer, Governor General from 1979 to 1984 said something like the following today in an interview on CBC:

“The People choose a Parliament; the Parliament chooses a Government.” And he should know the Constitution… he’s been there, with the Joe Clark minority government that lost a confidence vote.

That being said, if Parliament (the elected representatives) choose a coalition government by majority vote of the House of Commons, then democracy has been served.
