Immigration ministry blames bureaucrat for Sun News citizenship ceremony slip-up

OTTAWA—Flags, fakes and in the end, finger-pointing.

That sums up a phony citizenship ceremony staged for Sun News Network last October that featured immigration department officials posing as new Canadians at an event organized at the behest of Immigration Minister Jason Kenney’s office.

Red-faced immigration officials were blaming a Toronto bureaucrat for the debacle but opposition politicians insist Kenney’s staff must have been in on the ruse to “placate” the network.

“They make six bureaucrats actually pose as fake new citizens . . . That is in my opinion an appalling and unacceptable use of our civil service,” NDP MP Don Davies said Thursday.
