Talking Captain Kirk for Canada's Governor General ????

Canada's present GG is likely to step down soon and there is a movement afoot to have William Shatner..captain Kirk from the Star Trek series be nominated.


Where were a lot of goggles heard on the streets of many Canadian cities.

For those not in the know a Governor General is the Queen's representative to Canada so they represent the Queen's presence in Canada.

Ack! The guy does advertising for some kind of bran bars to keep you regular. Nice. I've heard he'a a real jerk in person also which is kind of counterproductive, seeing as the GG's role is one that calls for exceptional people skills.
On the plus side, he's pretty funny (Boston Legal is a pretty decent show) and he's into reining horses. At least he used to have reiners...
IDK, I sort of hope it's a joke...

Seriously?? He always struck me as kind of a goober.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Well I don't see why not, it really is more of a ceremonial role these days. The last thing a Governor General did for us (Aussies) was dismiss the Whitlam government in the 70's!

Good thing for us Steve Irwin isn't around anymore.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

I wonder if he would carry a gun and drop his pants ( like in Boston Legal).

But I guess sometimes the least obvious choice is maybe the best one. If I had had any say on who got elected as our first black president, I would have chosen Bill Cosby.

Oh lordy when I heard this last week I was just SOOOOO embarrassed to be Canadian. The guy comes off as a nimrod. Ok, we don't seem to have very high standards for GG, but p-leze! Save us from ourselves!
