As a writer on BCer In Toronto notes, and as this CBC story confirms, Wajid Khan is one of the dozen or so MPs in the house with dual citizenship. In this case, Khan is a citizen of Pakistan.
Now that Khan has become a member of the governing party, in fact a "Special Advisor on South Asia and the Middle East", he is in a position do far more damage to Canada's natural interest than Stephane Dion. For example, Pakistan seems to be running a double game in Afghanistan, apparently supporting the West while harboring and perhaps arming the Taliban. Whose side is Khan on? And what happens if India/Pakistan tensions flare up? Will Khan be able to offer objective advice, or will he (perhaps unconsciously) lean towards Pakistan?
And, therefore, should Khan be asked to demonstrate his loyalty to Canada by renouncing his dual citizenship?
I expect Ezra will be all over this one, and Andrew Coyne, who has recently turned to smearing Dion's patriotism, as well. Presumably, they will demand that Mr. Khan tear up his Pakistani citizenship papers on national television.
Yeah, I expect that real soon.
