Ghana closed by fire

A massive fire in an Ottawa hardware store which spewed toxic smoke and gasses is having an effect on Ghana.

The Ghana High Commission in Ottawa shares a building with a hardware store which burned on Wednesday 16 March 2011, causing a large evacuation of nearby residents and road closures.

Although Ghana has two building sites, they are currently not responding as they were evacuated from the current consular office with no notice.

This means it could be several days before Ghana resumes issuing visas.

Rwanda visas

Canadian need visas to visit Rwanda for any purpose.

Since the Rwandan genocide and the Canadian response, the government of Rwanda has let Canadians in without visas as a form of thanks.

Well, it seems that Rwanda is on the growing list of countries abused by Canada's current government, and has retaliated: visas are now mandatory.

Visas cost $70 and take seven working days to process. So if you are going to see the gorillas in the mist, or study the genocide, apply now.
