I will have to check with my friends. Thanks for the info.

I believe also that in order to vote one must prove that they have consumed some poutine within the past year..........

That is only a condition in Quebec, where poutine originated.

I've had dual citizenship since 1977 and have voted in every Provincial and Federal election since then.

You are referring to a person who wants to renounce citizenship. That is the opposite of wishing to keep it.

The Dept. of State is saying that you may lose your American citizenship if you apply to become a citizen elsewhere. They seem to go by your intent but that is unclear as to what the status would be if you make application to another country and become a citizen elsewhere, whether the U.S. can declare that have lost your citizenship.

Your chances of losing American Citizenship (especially if you wish to retain it) by becoming a Canadian Citizen, is nil. Your chances of outrunning the IRS in the process is also nil I'm not a lawyer but I am somewhat familiar with the law and the recent court cases. If you retain both citizenships and keep up with the US paperwork, then you've got the best of both worlds (except for the part about the paperwork).

What is the best of both worlds? The IRS no doubts wants to tax you on what you make there even if a dual citizen, right? I can believe that the paperwork is something.

That is one way to learn about and see Canada: Marry a Canadian! We will just be happy to see some of the country visiting.
