Just 3,100!?

'Cause the numbers are more likely in the hundreds of thousands if not millions.

From the National Post:

A widening federal crackdown has identified a record number of people suspected of acquiring their Canadian citizenship and immigration status through fraud. 
The number of newcomers under investigation for misrepresenting themselves in their dealings with Citizenship and Immigration Canada has ballooned to an historic 11,000 as a result of nation-wide enforcement. 
The figure is almost double the 6,500 identified by federal officials less than a year ago, suggesting that Canada’s citizenship and immigration fraud problems may be more widespread than previously thought.
Ya think!?

Still it's better than nothing and it does send a message.
