Looks like NDP MP Finn Donnelly has managed to get some celebrity support for his private member's bill to regulate salmon farming. It appears Captain Kirk will be addressing a press conference on Thursday (June 10) in support of Donnelly's bill.
I am wondering if this is becoming part of some general NDP strategy... trying to woo the Trekkie / Star Wars / fanboy vote? Is Anakin Skywalker going to be the next to come out in favour of NDP proposals?
It's an interesting tactic, but I am not sure it is likely to have big results unless things are changed to allow for on-line voting.
Of course there is the challenge of finding a Canadian born actor from LOTR to get a lock on this previously untapped vote...
[And yes, I know they refer to themselves as Trekkers, not Trekkies... but I like tweaking their noses]
