Spotted this on the front page of the Toronto Star while I was buying groceries yesterday. It has apparently been front-page news across the country.

This struck me as a weird idea at first, but it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. The guy is a cultural icon and possibly the most famous Canadian there is. It's mainly a ceremonial position, and I think Shat would attract a lot of attention both within Canada and around the world. And he would be arguably the most interesting GG so far. And he would be the first Jewish GG. The first woman was a big deal, and the first black, so why not?

I would say our current PM is just enough of a geek that the idea might appeal to him. I think the only major obstacle is whether Shatner, himself would make the commitment.

If William Shatner becomes GG of Canada, I will apply for Canadian citizenship and emigrate there. I've always wanted to visit Canada anyway.  Smile

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
