You should at least make a contribution IMO.

Yes it is different parenting styles but I know which one I'll be using

Anyways, thats not the point i'm trying to assess here

Regardless - $260 is expensive whether you're a broke student or not.

It costs less than the newest iPhone7 or Samsung Galaxy7 and lasts longer but also doesn't come with a headphone plug

Regardless! It's the price you pay if you wish to leave a country and go travelling.

I don't think that's expensive

Ah but the new iPhone 7 doesn't even come with a headphone jack so you are getting a crummy deal there.

Well I have seen a video that shows you how to add a headphone jack to the iPhone 7. Apparently you wrap a cloth around the glass and put it into a vice. You then get a 3.5mm drill and drill a hole into the top of the casing. You then submerge the phone in hot soapy water for 15 mins and then shake out any loose bits.

Well when you've already a passport for another country it seems redundant to those who don't have a spare $1k lying around to get everyone a second passport.

I don't find it expensive either - but i'm young and single and don't have anyone else's passports to pay for but my own. I will keep both my passports up to date at all times both out of necessity (eTA law) and because I think it is important, but not everyone feels the same.

Well I only have one passport and a pr card (the former renewed every 10 years and the latter every 5 years) - it's not a big deal and another passport doesn't make a massive difference.

When the time comes for canadian citizenship then I'll obviously get a canadian passport.

Any children I have will get canadian citizenship (if born here) and then they get my british citizenship. I pay for their passports but once they are in full time work they pay for their own.

I will not be operating a bank of mum!

Agreed. We're a family of 6. If we kept current every passport available to us, we'd have 23 passports between us. When money is an issue, sometimes you have to make decisions based on what makes sense and what doesn't.

I am with you, but neither of us have anyone to support but ourselves I guess the point stands still if you are a family of 6 with 2 adults and 4 kids under 10. $520 for the adult passports and $400 for all the kid ones is a bit redundant when you all already have passports for the country you live in.
Your kids will get Canadian citizenship if you naturalise here and they are born in UK as well in case you didn't know

Exactly. And in this case, the Cdn government is forcing the decision of what *doesn't* make sense for families like you guys subtract the US passports. This is the "big issue" IMO.

No prob

Its rather similar to British law - you naturalising here would be considered Canadian "otherwise than by descent" in terms of passing on citizenship, your kids getting "by descent" if born outside Canada. With the annoying restriction that even if your kids move to Canada after being born in UK and stay there for their childhood and then emigrate as an adult, they can't pass citizenship on to their children, even though they lived their whole life in Canada and consider themselves Canadian.

UK law has a provisio for this where if you are a Brit by descent and spend at least 3 years living in the UK then move abroad again you can pass your citizenship on.

Cheers

A "certificate of entitlement" costs £272 ($450) and takes up to six months. I'd call that fricking ridiculous, particularly if you're advocating in favour of that *instead* of the cheaper, quicker passport.


I also paid $220 for my new UK passport. A Canadian citizen getting a new one on next day service is $230. Basically the same.
