Government plans to strip 1,800 of citizenship


After a lengthy investigation involving police and the ministry of Citizenship and Immigration, the federal government now believes as many as 1,800 people in this country obtained their citizenship through fraudulent means. Letters have gone out to hundreds informing them the government now plans to revoke their status as Canadians. Individuals can challenge the rulings in federal court. If those efforts fail, cabinet will void their passports and strip them of their citizenship.
