Having a negative impact because the acquisition of Canadian citizenship devalues Canadian citizens and imposes a heavy financial burden on taxpayers, But the government eventually rejected the petition, arguing that it was perfectly legal for foreigners to give birth to children in the education-level, most human country.

- What benefits and drawbacks of each type of change should you consider before using it?
I think it’s good that it’s “absolutely legal” to give birth to a double non-infant in Canada. At the same time, it is pointed out that the policy of abolishing the automatic citizenship for babies born in China needs to be revised on a large scale. It is also emphasized that citizenship is only granted to infants, and parents will not become citizens because of this. Parents can only apply for the citizenship in accordance with procedures and conditions until their children are 18 years old.
