I saw that you know what "snide" means; do you also know what "condescending" means?

My experience (not in Canada) is that the natives "know" lots of things that aren't actually correct, and that immigrants, who have to negotiate the laws, rules, and regulations, both to get into a country and to get themselves established and make their way in life in their new home, often know a lot more about the actual laws and regulations than the natural-born natives think they "know"!

I don't think I'm the only Canadian on here or I'm even the best or smartest on here. Probably I'm the most obnoxious. But I do know I'm probably the only canadian immigration officer who's bang up to date on Canadian citizenship and Immigration law on here, thanks.

You'd be wrong about being the only BE member who's a bang up to date Canadian Immigration Officer. You might be correct about the most obnoxious bit, haven't read enough of your posts to know.

Yep, as above you're not the only CBSA/CIC immi officer on here, we have several. Whether you're the most obnoxious remains to be seen. Obnoxious just tend to get you shown the door fairly quickly, so perhaps try to emulate your fellow immi officers and help and advise instead?
