AG report on immigration a start, but misses bigger issue

In 2010, there were 2.8 million Canadian citizens who emigrated out of Canada. This represents many who have obtained Canadian citizenship only to abuse our social services or get a Canadian passport.

If Immigration Minister John McCallum believes implementing the recommendations of the auditor general will fix the system, he is wrong, writes Angelo Persichilli, who says the real problem are those who legally obtain citizenship with the intent of abusing Canada’s tolerance and hospitality.
