Liberty and Justice Party leader, Lenox Shuman to give up Canadian citizenship

 

Lenox Shuman

The leader of the newly-formed Liberty and Justice Party, Lenox Shuman, Saturday evening announced he would be giving up his Canadian citizenship.

“I will be giving up my Canadian citizenship,” he told a well-attended launch of the Liberty and Justice Party at the Georgetown Club, Camp Street, Georgetown.

He said his decision was motivated by the need to abide by Guyana’s laws and constitution.

Shuman said he would soon make another attempt to discuss relinquishing his Canadian citizenship with Canada’s High Commissioner to Guyana, Lilian Chatterjee.

The former Vice Chairman of the National Toshaos Council and former Toshao of St Cuthbert’s Mission also told reporters after the JLP’s launch that he had been a Canadian citizen for more than 20 years.

Asked whether he had planned to return Canada, he remarked that “those plans have been dealt with”. His wife and children were not seen at the launch.

This looks like the new norm......this is what 28 years and 23 years has done to Guyanese.....forcing people to look for a home all over creation....the political leaders are no different....they are playing it safe....if tings dont work out in Guyana, then they have a plan B.

....they are part time "hyphenated" citizens of Guyana....not genuinely concerned about the people in that god forsaken country.

WHO ARE THE 1/3 MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT WHO HAVE DUAL CITIZENS??

BTW....I wish this dude success....he could become the "THIRD" party Guyanese need.....not the 2 other parties that are being led by the 3 Stooges....

I will believe it when I see it. Is he going to disclose a document stating that he is no longer a Canadian citizen? 

Good point, let the Guyanese see the documents of renouncement.Clean the house of these Foreign Citizen holders, abide by the Constitution.

Giving up the citizenship and hold on the Canadian residents status. 

Enjoying the sugar from both ends and not breaking the laws of the home country to pursue his political aspirations. 

Could a Canadian resident same time be a full time resident in another country?

You can be a Canadian resident if you live 2 years within a 5 years period and the 2 years doesn’t have to be continuous . It can be accumulate.

US is very strict on the 6 months + 1 day rule.  There are few other tests, but this is the most popular.

Income matters not as you have to declare WW income regardless and take credit for taxes paid anywhere else!

Where is big mouthed Ronan...are the PNC politicians going to relinquish their citizenship to adhere to the constitution if they are so pedantic about the matter?

i will have to hazard a guess that they will comply with the LAW

having no choice and all that, rite?

There is no limit on how long a Canadian citizen may live abroad. Recently, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled also that they are still entitled to vote in federal elections. 

Same goes for US citizens, also you have file tax returns.

Canadian immigration is very strict. They use to check carefully how much time I spent living in America every time I came back to Canada to keep my Canadian residency.

His citizenship is the least of his problems.  He is a piss poor speaker. Babbling from notes that sound like he copied it from somewhere. His entire speech, he did not once say what he has to offer the Guyanese people.  He has no track record. No agenda. Nothing.

If duh duh du, Ramotar and Duh Duh du Iffart are are PPP viable I do not worry about that. One has to have goals and beliefs that support those goals and in time that will come. 

None of the Gimpex U people had a track record when they took office in 92, Most barely finished high school. Speaking to t he needs of Guyanese in general and Amerindians in particular is no problem. And there are many to help.
