NP for GG?
Lots of chatter amongst the fourth estate about who should be Canada's next Governor General.

For those outside of Canada, the Governor General is the official representative of the Queen and all laws passed by Parliament are required to receive what's called Royal Assent, which essentially means that the legislation receives the approval of the Queen's representative.

(Granted, it's a little more complex than that... you can read more about what the GG does here: The Governor General of Canada)

The current GG's term is due to expire in September, and a replacement has yet to be named.

A few names that have been bandied about are Rick Hansen, Preston Manning, William Shatner, Chief Clarence Louie and others.

I wonder if Prime Minister Harper would consider our beloved NP?

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

Captain Shatner, of course! Nothing against NP, but you could rename the entire government "the Enterprise" under the Cap'n!
