Yesterday, apart from the puttering, I finally got to fill out my application for renewal of my Permanent Resident card [same as Green Card].
I wrote about this in an earlier post, how I had devoted a day to this, only to find out that I didn’t have all the necessary forms. Well, the missing form arrived on Friday so now I was all set to go.
The instructions were really good, it all went swimmingly. I’ve checked and re-checked everything … today I’ll just put it in the mail and then, hopefully, I can stay in Canada for five more years. My Swedish passport, I renewed while I was there so that’s also good for another five years!
I often hear the expression «Red Tape» when it comes to dealing with authorities but I really don’t know where it comes from or what/where the tape really is. Has anyone really seen the red tape? I’m sure there’s some historical explanation to this expression….
Looked in my Flickr album to see what I shot a year ago at this time … we had snow, but only on and off.
This is in King’s Square, Saint John on December 4, 2010.
