Citizenship and Immigration

Conservative MP Devinder Shory answers questions on his bill (C-425) to allow permanent residents to gain Canadian citizenship one year earlier if they agree to serve three years in the Canadian Forces. The legislation also seeks to strip the citizenship of dual nationals if they commit acts of war against the military.

Colonels François Bariteau, director of personnel generation requirements, and Michael Gibson, deputy judge advocate general, discuss their concerns with the legislation during the second part of the meeting.
