Governor General Admits … She’s ‘Hot’

Members of Parliament and Canada’s new Governor General took time out of their busy schedules to roast each other and the media Saturday night. The annual Parliamentary Press Gallery Dinner was held at the Museum of Civilization in Gatineau.

Governor General Michaelle Jean jokingly admitted the real reason why Prime Minister Martin selected her to be the GG.

“He chose me because I’m hot!” Jean said to a jovial audience.

But not everyone was bragging about their looks. “I’m probably the only person here who looks like their passport photo,” said Conservative Leader Stephen Harper.

Harper added that the reason why Tory MP Gurmant Grewal missed the gala was because he was “at home taping the hockey game for his boss” and “editing it to make sure his team won.”

Prime Minister Martin, NDP Leader Jack Layton and even former prime minister Brian Mulroney addressed the crowd.
