Sun TV and Jason Kenney stage fake citizenship ceremony

"Let's do it. We can fake the oath."

Quote:
Six federal bureaucrats were drafted to pose as new Canadians for a citizenship reaffirmation ceremony broadcast on the Sun News network, an event requested by Immigration Minister Jason Kenney's office.

 

The bureaucrats smiled and held Canadian flags as the TV hosts referred to a group of 10 people as “new Canadians” that had “finally” received their citizenship.

 

 

See on-air apology :(
