    Shatner.

    Shatner Shatner.

    Can he be the US Ambassador to Canada or vice versa, whatever?

    Reporters just don't get Shatner. He likes to give absurd answers to their questions just to mess with their heads, and they report the things he says without getting the joke. Asking Shatner if he wanted to be governor general of Canada was a blatantly absurd question, so he one-upped it by asserting an even more absurd ambition in response.

    On formal occasions, yeah, they still wear the Red Serge.

    It was a rhetorical question, really, but if you're not listening too carefully, "Red Serge" might easily be mistaken for "redshirt".

    Well- it would be up to the party he choose to run in to make him leader of that first. Then the party would have to be elected... It's not up to you...

    But if you want to give us Mexico, we get LA (keep the Terminator though) and Texas (for the beef) too since Mexico practically owns them through immigration ;) anyway...

    As fun as it sounds to have Captain Kirk as Prime Minister of Canada (and I would always call him Prime Minister Captain Kirk :)), not only is he practically as nutty as his Crane character (not a negative as far as I'm concerned), but he's been her for a total of maybe 6 months in the past 50 years... Not exactly prime Canadian content anymore...
