Shatner For Governor General

1 min read

When the current Governor General steps down this year, readers of The Mark, a Canadian online political publication, have a candidate to replace her, the one and only Captain Kirk!

In a very informal poll, Shatner is handily beating the other candidates, which include hockey stars Bobby Orr and Wayne Gretzky.

The Governor General is the viceregal representative of Queen Elizabeth, who is appointed by the Queen to carry out most of the monarch’s constitutional and ceremonial duties in Canada.

Last year, Shatner made it clear that he would prefer another Canadian political office. “I must, with my deepest thanks, turn down your honorable intent to advance me as governor general,” he said. “Besides which, I don’t have time to be governor general. As prime minister I can lead Canada into even greater exploits.”

But this year, could it be that he is reconsidering? “I’m being drafted by various groups to run for Governor General,” Shatner tweeted recently. “Would they accept me if I campaign for salmons’ rights? My best, Bil”
