Ca: Passport applications from Kelowna go missing

From the Canadian Press:

More than one month after they were filed in Kelowna, at least 50 Canadian passport applications have disappeared.

Passport Canada officials in Vancouver confirm the loss.

They have advised affected applicants to check their bank accounts and keep a close watch for any potential identity theft.

In December 2008, the Privacy Commissioner and RCMP opened an investigation into other missing passport applications, although those seemed to be lost in transit.
