April 1. Ottawa. On the eve of an expected election in Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced today that Canada’s new Governor General will be Benjamin Netanyahu, whose reign as Prime Minister of Israel appears to be in jeopardy. Read more.
SPECIAL NEWS ITEM – APRIL 1, 2021
Under intense pressure to name a new Governor General before a possible general election, Prime Minister Trudeau announced his choice today – former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“The timing is propitious, Mr. Netanyahu became available just when we needed someone,” said Trudeau, “And we have learned from our past mistakes. This time we have done a thorough vetting process. It was carried out jointly by the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA) and Bnai Brith Canada with whom our government has had exceptionally close relations. We always coordinate our actions with both of them.”
According to Liberal Party sources, Mr. Netanyahu will also be bringing in his luggage a million “excess” doses of COVID vaccine, which had been destined for Palestinians under Israeli occupation. When asked whether Netanyahu had offered this as an “incentive” to facilitate his nomination, Trudeau declined comment.
“This is a great opportunity for me,” said Mr. Netanyahu. “As Canada’s new head of state, I will have immunity from the ridiculous and anti-Semitic investigation by the International Criminal Court (ICC)”.
Netanyahu faces an ICC investigation for possible criminal charges for war crimes as a result of his responsibility for two wars on Gaza and the most extensive program of illegal housing construction in the West Bank in history.
Support in Canada… and in Israel
The announcement was received enthusiastically in Canada and in Israel.
“We endorse this appointment”, said Erin O’Toole, leader of the Conservative Party of Canada. “Conservative values are Likud values”, he continued.
The appointment was also praised by Ayman Odeh, leader of the Arab Joint list in the Knesset. “This is great news. We have been trying to get rid of Mr. Netanyahu for years. We think Mr. Trudeau and Mr. Netanyahu will get along just fine.“
must be a joke. a known war criminal!!!
April 1st !
Thank heavens it’s April fools day! You’re having fun, Peter.
Thanks Peter for the wonderful April fool’s joke. Sadly the underlying motivations might be not far from the truth. Doug
April Fool’s once again……
HARDY-HAR!!! Well, better here than there?! PD
Good satire Peter .But if Trudeau had his druthers the picture would not be far from the truth.
Well done, Peter! You retains make the point. Any response from Trudeau? Alex Do all the good you can, in all the ways you can, for all the people you can, as long as you ever can.
You must be having a good day! The China one is more subtle. thanks for cheering us up – especially in BC where we have 1013 new cases. Marianna
I love it. You’ve pre-empted the CBC – I don’t know if they’re going to carry on their April 1 tradition.
Frankly, as squirely as our most recent GG exhibited herself as, I’d rather sit through an day long lecture from her and her so helpful assistant who also resigned from the vice-regal job than to ever be in any manner influenced from a serial liar, cheat and jailer of Palestinians.
That aside, thanks for a great wakeup effort on a sunny April 1.
thank you, Peter,
And a happy April 1st to you too!!
Good one Peter…though word has it that your name is actually at the top of the list for the GG position!
haha!!. thats a good one.
Peter be careful not to let Trudeau read this. You might give him an idea, he won’t be able to refuse. After all he repeatedly says that we have the same value as Israel. The same goes for his cronies.
Peter, I must say as an April fools joke I did not fine this amusing at all. Ian

hey Ian, why not?
Lovely bit of satire Peter! And not all that far from the truth, albeit an inconveient truth. I sent it to Trudeau but I doubt he read it. maybe he gets Anthony Housefather and/or Michael Levitt to screen his email.
An elegant April 1st plan that touches a few bases with screaming satire!
