Dual citizenship a convenience for some

Published on July 18, 2014

Why have dual citizenship?

This seems to be a convenience for those who wish to use it to be here or there.

Remember Lebanon? Canada paid a large amount of money to evacuate those with dual citizenship and then, when all was clear there, they went back to their homes there.

We are now facing the same thing with Palestine. How many times will this type of occurrence repeat itself and how much will it cost us? Why did they become Canadians? Was it a matter of convenience only?

If you become a Canadian citizen, then your previous citizenship should be revoked not kept for convenience.

I have been offered dual citizenship but turned it down as I am Canadian.

I am proud to be a Canadian, why aren’t they? To me it is not a convenience as it is with them.

The time has come for all to choose. Are you a Canadian or something else?

Citizenship is a right not a convenience.
