PM not keen on Mideast peackeeping force -- Harper says regional solution best Meagan Fitzpatrick, CanWest, July 25, 2006

From a sidebar with a photo of the PM: "Prime Minister Stephen Harper said the government intends to take a closer look at the rights and responsibilities of dual Canadian citizens."

F. Dual Citizenship

As noted, changes introduced by the 1977 Act permit dual citizenship. Before that time, Canadians who voluntarily acquired another citizenship, except by marriage, lost their Canadian citizenship. Until 1973, the regulations had also required applicants for citizenship to renounce their former citizenship, although whether that renunciation was legally effective depended on the law of the former homeland. When the government asked the Standing Committee to provide advice to the government in 1994, it did not highlight the issue as one that needed addressing, nor has it done so since.

Nevertheless, during its hearings, the Committee agreed with a number of witnesses who questioned the meaning of loyalty and allegiance where people hold dual or multiple citizenships and suggested that such a policy devalues the meaning of Canadian citizenship. For this and other reasons, the Committee recommended that the government explore the possibility of reinstating the former rules, so that an adult Canadian citizen who voluntarily and formally acquired the citizenship of another country(39) would cease to be a Canadian citizen.(40) Appendix B contains list of major countries that do recognize dual citizenship and those that do not.

Let's see. How can we put this delicately, so as not to offend politically correct sensitivities.

"It has been brought to our attention " ... no, that won't do it.

"There appear to be irreconcilable differences " ... nope, that's no better.

Aw the heck with it. Best just to blurt it out. I'm getting sick and tired of a never-ending series of demonstrations, blockades, sit ins and assorted other protests in the name of Native land claims. [....]
