Re: Name changes at ports other than US #belarus

Can anyone say with any authority (i.e. with reference to particular rules
or statements >from current immigration officials) whether immigration
officials in other countries, specifically Canada and the UK, could not
legally have "changed" the names of immigrants as they entered the country?

I too am getting fed up with repetitions of the "my grandfather's name was
changed by the immigration officials" line and would like to be able to
categorically refute this myth.
