This comic is a bit back dated....I was meaning to do something about our document dilema for a while now. Basically we needed replacements for colin's canadian citizen papers for christmas so I sent the paperwork out last summer. The replacement arrived this spring! 4 months after the fact. If you don't already know, new laws require all landed immigrants to carry a special ID card, or you need proof that you are a canadian (re: Passport). If you don't have proof that you a re a landed immigrant or a canadian citizen, or some kind of Visa, then you MAY be deported. Colin has a british passport and a british birth certificate, but he became a canadian citizen in the mid 90's, then promptly lost the papers hopelessly. So, we stood the risk of that. In the end, we ended up going to NYC anyway, after endless stressfull conversations and talking in circles. the customs officer hardly even looked at us twice!
