Default May 4th - Rumours?

Has anyone heard a rumour that they will announce on Monday that they now will NOT be opening on May 4th, but will be pushing it back to later in the year?

Reading between the lines I took from this article that it was no longer May.....but doesn't actually say it, so who knows.

With Mr Kenny tweeting that the backlog will be given 1st priority over any new applications, I would guess that they need more time... However with 18 month wait letters going out how long can they hold off?

At least the CIC backlog wont take 24 years to complete unlike the figures given for the UK Border Agency backlogs.
I guess we must be doing certain things right

He is supposed to be making an announcement on April Fools Day re what occupations will be on the list etc - so at least we are (hopefully) only days away from knowing that the heck they are up to.

April 1st is a Federal Holiday in Canada, so I doubt he would make any announcements then, although I have been wrong in the past, and will probably be wrong in the future.

He can always change his mind later, as he has done in the past, and then tweet something entirely different.

I can't believe twitter is considered an acceptable method of communicating such matters.

Official announcements aren't done via Twitter, they're done on the CIC website and via the Gazette.
