    Default Requirements to run for PM

    Does anybody know what the requirements are to run for PM?

    It's time we turn Canada into a real country.

    You just have to be a Canadian citizen whether you were born here or not and be 18+

    You may want to be friends with the Governor General if you want to go the quick route otherwise you maybe want to be the leader of a political party. I suggest not NDP and if you could get a former PM to say he is your father.... you're golden.

    So basically the best option is to start your own party and crush the opposition.

    I'll get a bunch of dead people from Chicago to vote for you, Hans

    It's worked wonders for the Democrats over here for decades

    Ya but make sure you get the most seats in the house. That's a big one and learn some French.

    It might be easier to become the Queen at this point in your life.

    No French. That's one of the things that's changing.
    I also need a famous well liked Canadian to put on printed currency bills.

    I am ready to shake things up!

    Too bad about the French thing. I thought the Autobeigne would revolutionalize the way we get around.

    The only two meeting your criteria of famous and well-liked are dead, Earnie Cooms and Bob Homme, aka Mr Dress Up and The Friendly Giant.

    Never heard of them before, so not famous enough.

    That's so true. The only other that I could add would be Gord Downie, and well..

    What an abysmal lack of understanding on how Canadian politics works.
