Confusing Citizenship Changes

Proposed federal regulations unveiled in mid-December seek to prevent children born to or adopted by Canadians outside the country from passing citizenship on to their children if they are also born abroad.
Citizenship changes could create 'inferior' citizens-via thevancouversun

Ok, but isn't this is the same government that has allowed children adopted/born abroad to automatically become citizens? It's just weird, I didn't know we were so freaked out about citizens of convenience that we would allow a sort of tier system. Shouldn't we be a bit more concerned with creating a class of stateless people than with the potential that some might not have the strongest loyalty to our flag and queen PM?
