Expedient

Oh, yes. One factual problem with Douglas Coupland’s The Gum Thief (and have you seen his youtube channel?). In the novel Bethany gets a passport in a week, and we can assume this took place in 2007, due to DC’s ulta-currency. But we all know that nobody in Canada got a passport in a week during 2007. But then maybe I’m just looking for holes. Maybe this is fiction, after all.

    Thank you.

    Hmmm. Did you pay extra for the rush? Did you get yours after the new regs came into effect in August? Or maybe you’re just lucky–my passport took nearly five months! I am glad to hear that things are working better for others. And that once again Douglas Coupland isn’t wrong.
