Canadian Press Misstates Number of Dual Citizens at 4 Million; Real Number Buried in the Hamilton Spectator

With the issue of Canadians holding dual citizenship becoming the whipping boy for the minority Conservative government, it is not hard to think that this error by the Canadian Press was an error at all.

Hamilton Spectator - News: "The Canadian Press reported incorrectly yesterday that Statistics Canada says four million Canadians have dual citizenship. In fact, the number is 691,310. As well, The Canadian Press had no basis for reporting that the number of dual citizens tripled from 1991 to 2001."
