It appears not even Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson can resist having a little fun on April Fools Day – even if it does mess with the heads of the electorate.

In a tweet sent just after 4 am on Sunday, April 1, Robertson, who announced early this year he would not be seeking a fourth term as the city’s mayor, appeared to change his mind, for those who momentarily forgot to check the calendar.

Response to Robertson’s tweet came fast and furious.

There were some messages of support for the idea, however.

And, of course, there were those who picked up on the joke right away.
