Canadian Confusion?

On one hand, the Conservative government of Canada has voted to ban incandescent light bulbs, in a Cameron-esque move which violates the right of free trade in Canada.

On the other hand, the Canadian government has broken off talks with the US Department of Homeland Security, after the Americans demanded the 'right' to fingerprint travellers at a proposed forward customs post being mooted for the Buffalo Peace Bridge.

The Canadians said that the Canadian Bill of Rights forbade the fingerprinting of people who had not been charged with a criminal offence.
That's better than Britain, better than America.
Good one, Canadians.
