Australian senator steps down because of dual Canadian citizenship "I had not renounced since I was unaware that I was a dual citizen.
Obviously this is something that I should have sought advice on when I first nominated for the Senate in 2007," said Waters in a statement. "I take full responsibility for this grave mistake and oversight. I am deeply sorry for the impact that it will have." Waters said she only discovered her status on Monday after seeking legal advice in the wake of fellow Green party member Scott Ludlam having to step down because he holds dual citizenship with New Zealand. Waters said she was "devastated" to learn she was a Canadian citizen and has resigned from office "with a heavy heart." "I have lived my life thinking that as coach outlet stores locations in illinois a baby I was naturalized to be Australian and only Australian, and my parents told me that I had until age 21 to actively seek Canadian citizenship," said Waters. "At 21, I chose not to seek dual citizenship, and I have never even visited Canada since leaving at 11 months old." Waters made international headlines earlier this year when she became the first woman to breastfeed her daughter, Alia, on the floor of the Australian Parliament. Australian media reports say Waters was seen by some as a future leader of the Green party.
