Statement made on 15 February 2011 by Senator Catherine Callbeck

Hon. Catherine S. Callbeck:

Honourable senators, my question is for the Leader of the Government in the Senate. Prince Edward Islanders are still the only Canadians who need to travel outside of their home province to obtain an urgent or express passport. These passports can be obtained only if one applies in person and, since there is no passport office in Prince Edward Island, we have to travel to the nearest office, which is in Fredericton or Halifax. Travel takes extra time. As honourable senators know, time is of the essence in an emergency.

How will this government ensure that Prince Edward Islanders can access an urgent or express passport without going outside their province?
