Canada's national debt out of control... in Federal Politics Posted Thursday at 10:51 PM · Report reply 6 minutes ago, taxme said: I wonder if your Canadian neighbor would like to move back to Canada, and live there, and give up her American citizenship? I doubt very much that she would do that. Obtaining an American citizenship is not easy to get. I am pretty sure that a Canadian citizenship is quite easy to get these days in Canada. Just cross the border into Canada from America illegally, and viola, you have a very good chance of staying in Canada. Just saying. No, she never got U.S. citizenship. She has permanent residency. Her Yankee husband works for the state department so that might be a complication for him. But on the matter of more refugees and immigrants for Canada, that also runs up the debt, directly and indirectly. Trudeau may have to reduce the numbers.
