Default citizenship application process too long

Posting for a friend:

My citizenship application has been processed for 15 months. Is this normal?
I am over 60 so I don't even need to write the test. Every time I call,
they tell me it is been processed and there is nothing to worry about. But
when I sent in the application, they issued a letter indicating that the
process will take 8 -10 month. I have been asking around and it seems that
people in Toronto and Montreal are luckier. The process speed for people in
those two cities are within 8 months. Ottawa is worst. > 16 months. Some
people in Ottawa are organizing a group letter to CIC demanding them to
speed up process for residence in Ottawa. Wonder if I should join them in
this letter. I am losing my chance to vote now (I am in Ontario) and if
they don't issue my card soon, by Dec 31 I will either have to apply for PR
card, or give up any travel plan. And God knows how long it will take them
to issue my PR card.

Anybody have same experience? How long have you all waited, and which city
are you in, please?
