Today we made a quick trip to Canada. Sydney’s been having some trouble renewing his Canadian passport, and, what with his trip to England fast approaching, he’s felt a bit more pressure to make sure it gets done, and done quickly. After some frustrating calls to officials, he decided to make a run to Canada to deal with officials in person. The officials in Ontario were much more helpful; an hour of waiting and talking and Sydney was able to submit his application. While it’s not guaranteed that everything is all set (his student status is a bit tricky, he doesn’t have a citizenship card handy, etc.), having it submitted with an official’s okay is a big step forward. We should hear whether it worked in about two weeks!
