Waking Up Canadian

Think being Canadian is funny? It is.

The Canadian government has passed a law that says - on April 17 - citizens who were forced to renounce their Canadian citizenship when they became naturalized citizens of other countries, will automtically get their citizenship back.

Here's a brief announcement to help you understand the complexities of the law. And, because we're fair to all, here's another an additional explanation in a language you may better understand.

So, regardless of colour, race, creed, or neighbourhood in which you live, you're now Canadian, A to Zed.

(I am a bit curious about the homourous approach the government took. I mean, could it be that being Canadian simply means hockey, Mounties, moose and maple leaves? Maybe.)

PS - I'm Canadian, therefore I'm allowed to make fun.

PPS - No moose were harmed in the writing of this post.
