If Ezra needs a hint as to how he can pretzel his way out of this, he should look at Jack Layton's comments:
"I would prefer that a leader of a party hold only Canadian citizenship, because one represents many Canadians, and for me that means that it's better to remain the citizen of one country," Layton told The Canadian Press.ie Dual citizenship is ok for voters (and presumably columnists), but not for party leaders. What nonsense. Recommend this Post
"But for a person that isn't in a position of representing others, holding dual citizenship is fine with us."
