 Conservative leader of Canada: cant be prime minister, so dont give up American citizenship


In the federal election in 2019, hill was revealed to have dual citizenship of Canada and the United States. Under Canadian law, the prime minister cannot have dual citizenship. At that time, Hill publicly said that he had applied to the U.S. government to renounce U.S. citizenship. But the Liberal Party led by Trudeau won the election by a small majority. The conservative party lost the chance to form a cabinet, and hill lost the possibility of becoming prime minister.

Hill said after his election, he knew he could not be Canadas prime minister, so he terminated the application process to give up U.S. citizenship.

According to media reports, Hill never actually submitted his application for renunciation of U.S. nationality to the U.S. government, nor could he specify the date when he took the action to terminate the application for renunciation of U.S. nationality.

White politicians in Canada often attack other ethnic groups with the so-called loyalty to Canada. However, the loyalty of white politicians to Canada has never been questioned. Even if hill did not give up dual citizenship but still campaigned, there was no wave. In Canadian politics, it has become a question mark to judge whether it is loyal to Canada by what standards.
