I expect that many people who are applying for certain jobs are not really qualified.  This Mr. DeSouza in the article says he is an accountant.

The tax laws are different in Canada and it is reasonable to expect that a person be competent in the field he applied to work in.

Everyone blames government, but those are unionized jobsworth lazy incompetent Canadians doing the processing. Canadians should accept the fact that there fellow citizens are going slow. The MPs and ministers of a government can only do so much. The government workers have to process the applicants.
