Hundreds of people lined up outside a downtown Montreal passport office hoping to get a new travel document.

Large crowds have gathered outside the office every day this week, as people many of whom have

departure dates within 48 hours try to renew their passports or obtain a Canadian passport for the
first time.

Social Development Minister Karina Gould has promised passport office employees would

speak to everyone in line in Montreal to ensure they get an appointment before their departure dates.
