Would he and Goldfarb have become Canadians after emigrating? ML4E 03:25, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Very likely. I don't remember them going through any naturalization procedures, but on the other hand, with the Dominion status and all I'm not even sure they had to to begin with. ML4E would be the one to ask on that. Turtle Fan 04:41, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Goldfarb had some issue or other, I think. TR 05:24, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

I did a little checking and found that the first Canadian Citizenship Act was passed in 1947, past the POD in the series. Prior to this Act, People were British Subjects with no immigration restrictions in moving between the Dominion and the British Isles. Given the timing in OTL, and the Fascistification of Britain, I expect something similar would happen in the Lizard TL after the peace treaty. According to the Goldfarb article, his problem was a criminal record for ginger smuggling. ML4E 06:55, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

The London-Ottawa legal-political relationship as of Colonization was quite vague. We know Canada grew wary of the Brits as they turned into little Nazis, but that seems to have played out only in the cultural arena. Still I have to imagine it also expressed itself in political pressure to distance themselves. Turtle Fan 12:23, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
