Those Wacky Canadians, what will they do now?

OTTAWA: The Canadian government, under fire because one of its ministers has been accused of giving preferential treatment to a Romanian stripper, said yesterday it was scrapping a programme that handed out temporary work permits to foreign-born exotic dancers.

Human resources minister Joe Volpe said it was clear that not all Canadians supported the programme, which granted permits to around 660 foreign strippers to work in Canada last year.
