Shatner Turns Down Canada Title
Actor William Shatner has turned down the chance to become Governor General of Canada - because he wants to be Prime Minister.
One fan alerted the Star Trek icon to the fact he planned to nominate the star as his homeland's Governor General, but Shatner insists he won't be supporting the idea - because, if he was to land a title, it would be higher.
He says, "It's a ceremonial role and I didn't wanna be ceremonial; I wanted it to be active, but I didn't have time to be that either.
"Sorry Canada, you've lost your favourite son."
