I was born in Canada but my Canadian citizenship has been stripped away

My name is Deepan Budlakoti, and I have been stripped of my Canadian passport.

I was born in Canada at Grace Hospital in Ottawa, which is now closed. I have an Ontario birth certificate. I held a Canadian passport and before that, I was on my mother's Canadian passport for five years. In my passport it says that my nationality is Canadian, the same is true of my younger brother.

At a time when all provinces are cutting resources from departments responsible for keeping corporations in check, it's not about abolishing the TFWP, it's about ensuring labour protection for all.
