Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: Lost Canadians

On April 10, 2017, Jenny rose to speak about lost Canadians:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, for decades, some Canadians have found themselves to be stateless due to a number of arcane laws. People could lose their citizenships just because they turned 28. Veterans who fought at Vimy Ridge are deemed not to be Canadians after all. A brother and sister in Syria, with a Canadian father, applied for Canadian citizenship under the same act and received opposite decisions. Why? Simply because the brother was born before 1977. That is absurd and illogical.

When will the minister bring in legislation to fix the lost Canadians problems once and for all?"
