Canadians are wonderful
Ok, my eldest son is a Canadaphile, but I'm getting more and more appreciative of the USA's larger neighbour. Canadians are such fine if restrained eccentrics.
I read Mirabilis' post on "History of Passports
" - it stood out from the feed largely because of the mention of Nehemiah and Artaxerxes.
From idle curiosity I also both looked at the Canadian Passport Office page on the "History of Passports
", and (in wonder at such a fine piece of bureaucratic informativeness) checked on Google to see who else had written on the subject. Almost all refer to the piece that seems to be by (or at least approved by) Doreen Steidle who is Chief Executive Officer of the Canadian Passport Office.
