Full Text

Dear editor, Once the Canadian governmentorganized repatriation of Canadians out of Lebanon has been completed, maybe we should look at the question of who these "Canadians" are in such situations. Are we talking about Canadians who live, work and pay taxes in Canada and are on holidays or, are they holders of "Canadian passports of convenience" and after moving away from Canada, expect Canada to help out if they run into trouble? I myself, after having been liberated by Canadian Armed Forces in 1945, will be forever thankful to Canada for giving me the opportunity to come and live here in 1956 at the age of 21. I look at the granting of my Canadian passport (in 1962), as a privilege, not a right. Thank you Canada. Marinus (Rein) Pater, Georgetown
