Is my MP Canadian?

Yes she is.

But The Gazette’s Liz Thompson has a piece in today’s paper about so-called “lost” Canadians who are now realizing they were never Canadian citizens for bureaucratic reasons. Marlene Jennings is safe, but apparently was worried for quite a while about it.

This concerns me somewhat. Does Parliament not check that MPs are Canadian citizens before allowing them to take office?

Also today: Gazette freelancer (and Habs Inside/Out Puckcast host John MacFarlane lectures educates us about the politics of food, and Part 3 (subscriber-locked) of my supermarket shopper series.

And on Page A6, a far-too-large story on a CanWest spelling bee is surrounded by stories on shootings, stabbings, home invasions and drunk driving.
