Your trip is not such a burden
I don’t believe the person writing in about having to travel to Winnipeg for citizenship oath missed the point. Obviously, some newcomers were complaining about having to make this trip. Just be happy that you have been able to come to our country. Many of us as I am sure the person having to take her sick child to Winnipeg all the time realizes the service cutbacks, but I think there needs to be a priority in what services are cut back. Look at our veterans who have fought for our country and tried to bring peace to other countries — they have a right to complain. Making a trip to Winnipeg is no big deal — it is the provincial capital. I understand both Sound Offs, having to travel back and forth with a sick child tops my list.
