    You might end up Canadian??? WTF?

    Thanks
    to a new law, Canada will bestow citizenship Friday on what its
    government believes could be hundreds of thousands of unsuspecting
    foreigners, most of them Americans.
    The April 17 amendment to Canada's Citizenship Act automatically
    restores Canadian nationality to many people forced to renounce it when
    they became citizens of another country. It also grants citizenship to
    their children.

    In
    the video 'Waking Up Canadian,' a man goes to sleep in a drab room and
    wakes up to find out that he's become a citizen of Canada. Surrounded
    by flags, maple-leaf-shaped cookies and a canister of maple syrup, he's
    welcomed by a hockey player, two plush moose and a uniformed Mountie.

    The
    Canadian government doesn't know the precise number or location of
    individuals affected by the legislation. But it believes most are U.S.
    citizens, a spokeswoman for Canada's immigration office said. U.S.
    Department of Homeland Security records show 240,000 Canadians were
    naturalized in the U.S. from 1948 to 1977; the new law fixes problems
    that occurred during those years.
    To reach that amorphous group of beneficiaries, the Canadian government has turned to YouTube. It's running an ad there titled "Waking up Canadian,"
    in which a man awakens on April 17 to a room festooned with
    red-and-white Canadian flags. He's met by a welcoming committee
    consisting of two stuffed plush moose, a hockey player, and a member of
    the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
    Eligible individuals automatically become Canadian citizens. But
    they don't get proof of that citizenship unless they apply for it,
    meaning other countries -- including those that allow people to be
    citizens of only one nation -- won't be alerted, according to the
    immigration office spokeswoman. Those people also may renounce their
    citizenship rights, she said.View Full Image

    Canada is using YouTube to tout a new law granting citizenship to unsuspecting foreigners, many of whom are Americans.The
    citizenship bonanza is the byproduct of a decadeslong struggle by a
    motley group of people who claim they were unfairly denied or lost
    their Canadian nationality. Canadian families who crossed the border in
    1947 to 1977 to have their babies in a U.S. hospital found those
    children weren't recognized as Canadians unless the families registered
    them with the government. Some foreign brides of Canadian World War II
    servicemen lost their citizenship if they stayed out of the country for
    a decade or more.



    Then there are the Canadian Mennonites who moved to Mexico in the
    1920s to the 1960s. When their children and grandchildren returned to
    Canada, many found their nationality unclear.
    Some such cases languished in litigation for years. Others surfaced
    in 2007, when new U.S. rules requiring passports for travel between
    Canada and the U.S. uncovered significant numbers of people who thought
    they were Canadian, but weren't. The old rules were "quite intricate,"
    said Bill Janzen, an immigration lobbyist in Ottawa for the Mennonite
    Central Committee of Canada.
    The new law offers citizenship to many individuals now in limbo. It
    also stops the previous practice of granting citizenship in perpetuity
    to children of Canadians born abroad, limiting eligibility to children
    of parents born in Canada.
