Burris wants to be Canadian citizen but can't?

In a recent story from the CBC and other media on the CFL, Redblacks QB Henry Burris want's to become a Canadian Citizen but can't because the CFL is looked upon by immigration as a part time job in Canada at six or eight months out of the year.

See story on the following link:

I don't think any special considerations should be given to anybody applying to become a Canadian Citizen however people with lesser contibutions to society or other have been granted citizenship.

Thus speaketh bureaucracy. Not many part-time jobs paying what Burris gets.
