The passport office, maybe?

I’ve seen this long line-up in front of the Sinclair Centre every morning on my way to work for the last two weeks. I get to work between 8:15 and 8:30 am. I’m surprised that this many people still need to get a passport. Where are they all going?

The line-up starts at the green Sinclair Centre awning and – I checked this morning to make sure I’m not exaggerating – but the line up goes right up to the end of the block to Granville Street and around the side of the building towards Cordova Street. Every morning it’s like this. How many people work at the passport office? Four?

On my way home from work, I eavesdropped in on a conversation about this very topic. One person mentioned to the other person that she heard that people were starting to line up at 3:30 am. This is how rumors get started.

Now seems a good time to refer to Ghosty’s post about the passport application process. I think I’ll just keep waiting to get mine. No rush.

    As an update to both this and my post. I finally got my passport. 3 weeks to the day I applied for it, which is 1 whole week ahead of what I was told would be how long it’d take.

    Actually, people do line up that early. Like around 4. So it’s not quite a rumor.
