Oh for $%#&! Sakes

Abdihakim Mohammed, a 25-year-old Somalian-Canadian, has been stuck in Kenya for three years, accused by Canadian diplomatic officials of being an imposter.

At a loss for words doesn't even begin to describe what I'm feeling right now.

Just one point, Harper this happened on your watch.

If a Conservative dares splutter "But the Liberals! They did nothing!" I'm going falsify documents and ship them off to Kenya.

Has Harper--or anybody daring to speak for him--tried to give *any* excuse for this attitude they seem to have? Because it looks for all the world like you're not Canadian as soon as you cross the damn border.

This, combined with the nonsense of people having to submit DNA evidence and utter failure of intelligence services to stand up for Canadians abroad, are continuing to devalue the passport and citizenship in general.

I'm sure that if we *just* agree to give up biometric data, and have it added to passport information, then these problems will all go away of course. Or, at least that's how I expect they'll be pitched to Canadians in the next few years...

@Ken:

The only excuse I've heard is "we try our best" and "we can't be held accountable outside our sovereign borders"
