I'm sorry to be a bearer of bad news, but we failed.
The officer didn't even bother to look at any of the evidence. Didn't even open the new evidence. It was sitting on his right hand side in that little booth the entire time. Untouched.
Why did he fail us? He blatantly stated that my husband doesn't care enough about me/love me enough, because he didn't RISK coming to visit me without his P.R. card......
then stated that my husband's bosses SURELY won't mind if he was stuck in Europe for a few extra weeks, or however long it would take for Vienna to process a Travel Document for my husband....
Funny, how it's CIC's fault that they misinformed him, twice, about that Travel Document, stating that he might get stuck outside Canada, but the visa officer today stated how it's clear as day on the CIC website that people can indeed travel without their PR.
I'm shocked, disgusted, confused, angry, you name it.
We're not gonna take the easy way out and reapply. No. We're taking the VO to court. They can eff off.
Also, the VO checked my hubbys PR application today, and guess what? IT'S STILL MISSING.
I am so tired of being pushed around by bureaucratic jerks.
(fyi, the VO was trying to twist my answer around at one point, which pissed me off. I kindly told him that he misinterpreted what I said and logic/law CANNOT do such a thing, but he was persistent with his misinterpretation. Like a damn broken record.)
