CANADIAN citizenship – identity or convenience ?

Canada citizenship – acquired identity or only a convenience ?

[ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_nationality_law ]

More and more, Canadian citizenship is used (and abused) for purposes of forcing the Canadian Government to evacuate persons (who have most of the time dual citizenship – their birth and that of acquired Canadian) from countries and situations where they believe they are at risk. Be that war, or any medical epidemic from which to distance themselves, or temporary economic social reasons.

During the past several years there have been many instances all over the world testifying to this situation.

Using your Canadian citizenship when convenient.

This is wrong and unfair to all those Canadians who permanently reside here in Canada, work, pay their taxes and contribute to Canada’s economy.

Particular in my case this goes against all principles of fair play:

When I came to Canada (on an expired U.S. student visa), within a few days I managed to find myself a job. This Canadian government – nor my own (birth) government – never had to pay a cent for me and my little boy since I started working.

Despite the fact that when we arrived here from the United States in the 1970s we also had no home and had to sleep in my old car for a while.

The clincher is this: Four years after residing here as Landed Immigrants, we acquired the Canadian citizenship. Which in my case resulted in loosing my birth citizenship (worse – the EU citizenship, which came into effect after we received the Canadian.) My son kept his birth citizenship, as he was born in a different (EU) country.

It is clear that losing ones birth citizenship is always controlled by the birth country, not by Canada.

[NOTE from Internet: The German law on citizenship mandates that German citizens who voluntarily apply for and accept Canadian citizenship will automatically lose their German citizenship if they have not been granted a permission to retain the German citizenship prior to becoming Canadian.”]

Yet, the question here still is: If you move back to your own country, or reside in your own country, why do you need the Canadian citizenship ???

Convenience, or safety net ?

[NOTE from Internet: “It refers to people with multiple citizenship who immigrated to Canada, met the residency requirement to obtain citizenship, obtained Canadian citizenship, and moved back to their original home country while maintaining their Canadian citizenship, with those who support the term claiming they do so as a safety net.”]

{NOTE. End of story for now, as this saga goes on.}

Germany – Canada Immigration Policies

Just reading the other day that Germany will have a closer look to Canada when making changes to their immigration rules. Canada being looked upon as a ‘Vorbild’ (model). Problems in Germany mainly brought about by strong opposition against certain groups of immigrants, having lead to massive demonstrations and racism. [ http://www.globalresearch.ca/germany-tens-of-thousands-protest-against-ultra-right-pegida-movement/5421806 ].
What is ridiculous is that the majority of those who march in demonstrations are not even German. They are immigrants having arrived from many different countries. And received some German passport. The real Germans are the older senior citizens, they do not march. If they would march, they would likely be killed or at least severely beaten by the young radical ones.
How on the other hand Canada can be a model is questionable. Canada is a large area, empty one might say. Of course, immigration rules can be relaxed here. There is space for so many more immigrants. And BTW to immigrate to Canada one must have proof of work or employment. That was when I came in. How it is now, I do not know. We certainly have large numbers of so called homeless people lying around in the street, who do not look like they ever worked. But get free health care and subsistence allowances and free everything.
