Sure but the poster made it sound like his status was determined when he got a passport as a 25-year-old. At that point it did not matter how he got his citizenship and getting his passport was a simple formality, very much like Sturm or Crosby or Koivu getting theirs. I don't think anyone would say Crosby "took a Canadian passport", as if he had another one before.
