Not only are the passports getting even more outrageously expensive, but if you get a ten year passport, you get a deal! Step right up, wealthy elites..5 years, $120, and ten years, $160! Whatta deal, eh? The government is complaining that they lose money at the old rates….and once again, we get shellacked for their economic ineptitude when it comes to the bonuses and fabulous salaries of Con upper echelon in the bureaucracy… and the article points out that the ‘new’ passport has ‘security’ features to keep those pesky forgers at bay…
The real reason Canadian passports are so widely forged must be that they are ridiculously expensive..how could any bureaucracy lose money at such a rate? Oh, wait…we’re talking about the Canadian bureaucracy..
Guess those overpriced staffers in the PMO office need their raises badly…
This will certainly keep all but the well-off from daring to attempt to leave the country-at least, legally…Canadian Passports-priceless (literally)
I realize the Cons are doing all they can to keep everyone but the most wealthy immigrants from moving here, but this is a step beyond….
