The law was drafted in the 1970s out of concern that citizenship could be passed along indefinitely to generations abroad who were less and less connected to Canada, said Audrey Macklin, a law professor at the University of Toronto.

Macklin said it wasn't necessarily unfair, at least in theory, to require someone twice removed from being born in Canada to prove a connection to the country.

The problem, though, was rooted in the government's inability to identify and inform those people that their citizenship would "evaporate" if they didn't take specific steps to retain it, she said.


No wonder our allies don't trust us...

There's a colon missing in the URL. It should be "https://" but instead the link is "https//".
