"I must, with deepest thanks, turn down your honourable intent to advance me as Governor General. Besides which, I don't have time to be Governor General," wrote the Star Trek star. "My intention is to be Prime Minister of Canada, not Governor General, which is mainly a ceremonial position."

Even though the gig is one step down from Governor General, the 77-year-old actor explained that he thinks he could make a bigger impact as Prime Minister.

"As Prime Minister I can lead Canada into even greater exploits," Shatner explained.

We can think of no better time than now for Canada to live long and prosper.
