Ms. Libby Davies (Vancouver East, NDP): - Mr. Speaker, the US government will suspend its rules requiring its citizens to carry a passport when flying in and out of Canada because of the massive backlog they have.
But this decision to waive the rule is not being extended to Canadians.
The decision proves the program is dysfunctional and will unfairly hurt Canadians. We know officials here are swamped with passport applications and are not keeping up. Will the government ask for the same exemption for Canadians? Will they stand up for Canada?
