Does the fact that the applicant has spent more time in Canada since applying for Canadian citizenship, but has not centralized her mode of living in Canada prior to her application, or has she not?

Canada (Federal), Canada

The following excerpt is from Kwan v. Canada (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration), 2001 FCT 738 (CanLII):

The applicant cites the following passage from Reed J., in Ref. Jing Yang Justin WANG v. MCI (1999) (T-1881-98), at paragraph 10: If the events subsequent to a person's application for citizenship cast light on the quality of the person's connection with Canada at the earlier time, then, those events are relevant to the citizenship judge's evaluation, and the citizenship judge cannot be faulted for taking them into account. This passage states that a citizenship judge can take this evidence into account if it is relevant, i.e. if it casts light on the quality of the person's connection with Canada at the earlier time. However, it does not say that a citizenship judge errs if he or she does not take into account events that occurred after the application for citizenship has been made. Furthermore, in the case at bar, it is my opinion that the fact that the applicant has spent more time in Canada since her application does not change the fact that she had not "centralized her mode of living in Canada prior to her application". Hence, it does not cast light on the applicant's connection with Canada prior to her application.
