The point of this article is that your Canadian Passport is not going to safely get you home from many countries.. Don't count on going to many of these places and have your passport as a safe way home..
That has nothing to with this particular case.
The bottom line with this case is games were being played.
Canadian security officials are not quite sure what exactly this woman was trying to do but it appears that she was "testing" Canadian border services and security while travelling.
It is still unknown if her friends, cousins or other Muslim persons were pretending to be her or travelling on her passport in Africa or even if Canada.
The bottom line is she was screened and caught by African officials as being a bit dodgy, passport wise.
Canadian immigration officials questioned her or persons ( the burka thing was going on randomly and unpredictably) who claimed to be her several times in Africa.
She was supposedly a Canadian citizen who had lived in Toronto for years and years.
I don't remember if she lived in Toronto for 10 years or 20 years someone else can look it up.
She did not know where her son was born (Canada was the answer).
She did not know what hospital or city he was born in.
She did not know how old her children were.
She did not know what city she had lived in for 15 or so years (Toronto).
She did not know where or what Ontario was.
She had worked at the same company in Toronto for 10 or 15 years and she did not know the name of the company, where it was or what her job at the company was.
She had taken the Toronto Transit System to work for 10 or 15 years and she did not know what the Toronto Transit system was, where it was, what any of the stops where or where she got on or off.
Sound a bit iffy to you?
Senior Canadian Immigration officials who interviewed some person who claimed to be the Canadian in question sure thought so.
DNA finally proved that someone in Africa with a Canadian passport was indeed the parent of the kid who lived in Toronto.
Between all the people who looked completely different on various security cameras in various countries all travelling on this one Canadian passport.
The burka thing going on in various interviews with who knows who, all one this same Canadian passport.
It all smells very, very dodgy.
This was no amateur hour thing.
There is no trace of a mental or psychological handicap in this issue.
Senior Canadian immigration were interviewing a person or persons in Africa with a Canadian passport who had been picked up and did not match the profile of someone who had ever been to Canada.
A mother who does not remember how old or where her kid was born.
And now a law suit.
Canadian Immigration services need to toughen up a bit.
Not everyone who claims to be or wants to be a Canadian has Canada's best interests as a nation at heart.
