Why William Shatner should be the next
Governor-General of Canada:
1. He is Canadian.
2. He is bilingual.
3. He owns his own tuxedo.
4. He has experience paddling a canoe.
5. He is known internationally. As the Captain of the Enterprise! And -- of course -- for other roles and ventures.
6. People would actually watch Throne Speeches. If. Delivered. By. William. Shatner. From. The. FloorOfTheHouseOfCommons.
7. We're all getting a little bit bored of having the Queen on our stamps and coins, right? I bet she'd be willing to let The Shat have a turn.
8. All state funerals would include Shatner performing Live Life Like You're Gonna Die.
9. Isn't it about time we had a Jewish Governor-General?
11. He's not going to prorogue parliament for just any schlub in a shiny suit.
12, As the Priceline negotiator, he will be able to keep his travel expenses down, unlike other governor-generals.
13. It's his birthday today and I didn't get him anything!
