I don't have to tell you that there are Canadian families who are really struggling. The cost of a passport, at $120, for the average family that might have three or four kids, means that a significant burden is put on them, and especially now. When my kids were younger, you could travel to the States without a passport. I can even remember travelling to Mexico through the States without a passport. It was so much easier then.
How can we justify this fee increase when Canadian families are really struggling to make ends meet? It once again ends up being a burden for the people who already struggle.
